Battle.net Mobile Authenticator is a mobile phone application used by a major percentage of iOS and Android device users. The good thing is that this mobile app is now available for Windows Phone 7 users too.
This application provides ultimate security to Battle.net users. It gives you a one-time password along with a regular password and account name so that nobody can access your account in your absence. You will have to enter this user name and password whenever you log in to the Battle.net account for playing StarCraft II or World of Warcraft games on your Windows Phone 7.
The best aspect of Battle.net Mobile Authenticator is that it is available for FREE to download and can also be used with an iPod Touch. But it will require Wi-Fi connectivity during setting up, re-setting up, or re-syncing.
Beginning of the application is done through an RSA-encrypted request to the Blizzards initialization servers. This will include a single use pad key needed for encryption. A 160-bit key is generated by the server which is used later for the generation of code. These are stored on servers and are sent back to the client.
A Physical Device for Self-Defense
You can also have the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator physical device, which will be delivered to your doorstep without any cost. Additionally, you can purchase the software version of the application from the Blizzard store Â over the Internet. You just need to install this application on your device and it will stay protected against different malicious programs, including Trojans, rootkits, and adware. The hackers will not be able to peep into your system and you will enjoy ultimate security, that too without spending a single penny.
