iPhone Mobile Authenticator App Update

Is it possible then to be able to use both authenticators? Like I've got the actual keychain one. But I've wanted to get the other on my iPhone. That way if say I want to access the forums and converse with you fun folks while I'm at work or something, I can just use my iPhone app to generate a number instead of having to carry the keychain with me. Yes, I know it's a KEYCHAIN, but I have quite enough crap I carry with me on my keys as is. But I wasn't sure if having both would somehow cause them to interfere with each other.

Nope - it's one or the other.

But you can switch to the iPhone app when it gets updated, and give the keychain one to a friend that plays.

there was no problem for those already with the app, just new people trying to download the app couldnt find it on the store because it was removed temporarily.

I tried to log in a few times today and I couldn't. Reset my password and I still couldn't get online. I'm using an iphone authenticator so I assume that this has something to do with it.

Before I started playing again, my children used my phone and deleted my authenticator. I just reinstalled it from the app store and it worked just fine. Since I couldn't log on I deleted it again and attempted to reinstall it yet again but guess what.

IT'S NOT ON THE APP STORE NOW!

Getting pissed...


This would be why you record your serial number from your authenticator, so you can take it OFF your account if you need to...

You actually need 2 consecutive codes from the authenticator to take it off.

I'de have no idea why you wouldn't trust it. I love the authenticator, although I have been hacked before so I guess that's a reason to like it. Makes me feel safe!

When will the authenticator be back up?

Most people who know their way around a computer don't need an authenicator. Hooray for Computer Literacy.

To those who aren't as tech savvy, then yes, you should probably get one. I personally know my way well enough around that I don't need to spend the extra money, but it is always a solid backup for anyone who's not sure.

My authenticator experiences have been this (i use an ipod touch one). If you let your ipod die and stay dead for a while, your going to have to call blizzard to change authenticators. If you break it and get a new one, you will have to call blizzard. The serial numbers on each authenticators are unique and therefore require a change. However being hacked twice, i know from experience an authenticator is worth the hassle.

I like how blizzard say that they took it down. Apple removed the new version of the authenticator because it did not comply with their app requirements.

Your commenting on a page about the Iphone/Ipod authenticator app which is free. There is no 'extra money spent'.

You are computer literate to make a password so strong it cannot be hacked? lol good luck n00b. There is nothing tech-savy about it, all passwords are hackable. Full stop.

you know if the app gets deleted you need to remove the authenticator from your account and put a new one on because the serials have changed.

I like how you post this now, not yesterday when I encountered this problem and had no idea what was going on.


Would you rather they never said anything at all?

If true, gotta love that corporate spin!
