We have, I think 5 hard copies of WoW between 2 people, and that was a freaking nightmare to try to figure out which one was my fiance's main account they're marked now when he had to call to have it deactivated due to an iPhone change. It's not secure when used on the same machine that you're using WoW from. Eventually I called Blizzard Support on their Australian number, yay , and within a few minutes, after some exhaustive 'prove you are you' interrogation, they were able to revoke my old authenticator, add my new authenticator app serial number, and wait for me to successfully logon to battle. I went to log in and the auto-update had changed my serial so it was no longer giving me valid auth codes and I couldn't remove it either. The major benefit of an authenticator is that if your machine is compromised with a keylogger or other piece of malware, people still cannot easily gain access to your account. Jot down the serial number and restore code, store it someplace safe not on your computer.
In a case like this, it will be necessary to contact our Account Services staff directly. Normally that time shouldn't differ too much from the common time. It is difficult to say, whether this is less secure or not in comparison to running it on a real mobile device from an application which is directly supported by Blizzard. Think of it like this: this project is basically a bazooka. If you use this, don't run your authenticator on the same machine that you log in on.
You can't logon to the site, at all. Our representatives will be able to assist you with regaining account access by verifying certain secure information with you. A good keylogger will go through your text files looking for things like this. But since the authenticator was on the 3G and. I did however edit the project page on more information about this. Then they can use it to remove your authenticator.
I've always assumed that was fine and I've never been hacked. Looks like they don't want me to play Wow. That kind of quick turn-around should be considered exemplary. You need to call customer service off wow's tech support page. Guy even mentioned, next time this happens, just call us. I'm happy the project exists; I just wish it warned users not to run it on their WoW machine.
Password wasn't that great, and a month or so later, I got an email saying my password had been changed. It requires the user to find the serial number on the back of the authenticator dongle, or if they are using a mobile authenticator, the key that they received for that. But she uses really simple passwords and tends to load up lots of crappy Facebook games, despite my concerns. It isn't printed anywhere on their phone, nor is it saved in a physical location after it is discarded, unlike the dongle authenticator. All it would take is for the malware authors to add a check for this program and you might as well not have it. A good keylogger will go through your text files looking for things like this. I havn't played in a month so I'm unsure where I stand now, but feel free to add me: Chucknorris 1754 I mainly play barb, and i believe i was around 250-300 un-buffed? To expand: I recently stopped playing Diablo about a month ago, which just happens to be when my old phone finally broke.

This kind of online application is less secure than a desktop port, but, as an advantage, one can retrieve their code from anywhere. Yeah, for me a third party cloud service is the best way to store this kind of thing. You'll need your secret word and cd-key for original wow. I understand what you're trying to do here, but it's bad security, and I'd rather see people use Blizz's dial-in authenticator method first if they have no other option. I took a picture of my Driver's License and sent it to them. If you lose your Blizzard Authenticator, you will need to contact Billing and Account Services team for assistance.
Then again, given the search space, I can't imagine anyone with an ounce of sense trying that. I did this back when the kingrings first came out for WoW and in a month the battery died. So at end, I can still log into all accounts at once and have a way to get a code at work. I actually have one of the physical tokens, although I always worry about what will happen when the battery runs out. Have it autogenerate a password for you and change your Battle. Just a quick note went through this last week with my account if you have turned on the mobile alerts option, you can have the authenticator removed right then and there on the spot. What I'd like to see is warning about the security implications.
If I can do this, then I could link my iPhone authenticator up with it. If you cannot find these, you will need to contact Blizzard or ArenaNet and have the authenticator removed from your account. No different than if you had lost a keyfob version or your phone. It's an app that generates codes which the Battle. I had an issue with this upgrading a phone last year. But my problem is: i have today installed a new Windows 7 and i forgot to put the authenticator on my external hard drive so i dont know the serial and restore code anymore does anyone know how to get this back? When you request the authenticator to be removed, the site texts you a code which you type back into the webpage, and it removes the authenticator.
