Since the Real Money Auction House went away and all the good items items became BoA, the Diablo 3 community hasn’t heard or thought much about authenticators. They’re still out there though, and Blizzard posted news this week about an update to their mobile authenticator, if you need your account security via smart phone. Or just don’t want to pay for one of the easily-lost little authenticator sticks. Battle.net Mobile Authenticator Updated:
The Battle.net Mobile Authenticator app has recently been updated for both iOS and Android, and it’s been rebuilt from the ground up to make it faster, more efficient, and easier to use. You’ll also notice some extra shine and polish, including a brand-new design that displays a new piece of art from one of Blizzard’s games every time you load a code.
Players using the iOS version will also now be able to use iCloud to make it easier than ever to back up and restore your Authenticator, streamlining the setup process whenever you need to recover or switch to a new device.
Don’t have an Authenticator on your account? Download the free Battle.net Mobile Authenticator application for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows devices here, or purchase a physical Battle.net Authenticator from the online Blizzard Gear Store. Visit the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator FAQ for more information, or head to the setup page to get started after you’ve downloaded the application.

Well, I feel safer already.
