    The evolution of Blizzard Entertainments fight against individuals and companies making a living on compromising accounts of players has lead to this application. A bare bones application synchronized with the Warcraft Authentication Servers which requires you to enter an 8 digit authentication code each time you access your account. This limits the ability for account compromisers from accessing your hard earned gear and achievements. The unique to your authenticator code changes every 60 seconds and can only be used once. Multiple accounts can be tied to a single authenticator so one app can server multiple accounts.

    WARNING: Though making things more difficult for account compromisers, it is not perfect. Man in the middle attacks can still allow an account to be comprised. As such using your best judgement with regards to sites which you enter your Warcraft username, password and authenticator still applies.

    Overall, this app is great for protecting what can surely be a big investment of time and emotion. A must for any android using Warcraft player who does not have a stand-alone authenticator.
