Blizzard Releases Authenticator App for Android Phones

If you’re like me and you’re using a smartphone that’s running Google’s Android mobile operating system, you’ve been waiting for the day when Blizzard unveils an authenticator app for your platform as well as the iPhone app that’s already available. I have a Motorola Droid (like the one above) and even though I also have an iPod Touch, I keep my Droid with me at all times, so it’s probably a better tool to use to log in to World of Warcraft if I want the added security.

Yesterday, Blizzard announced that they were releasing an authenticator app for Android phones, and that it’s already available in the Android App Market for download – for free! Of course, Blizzard plans to continue to roll out authenticator apps to other mobile platforms in the future, but with the rapidly rising Android population and the already-massive iPhone population covered, and the fact that physical authenticators are still available for sale at the Blizzard Store, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have one by now. And yes, don’t forget – if you snag the new authenticator app, you’ll get a Core Hound Pup in the mail!
