To add extra security to their players gaming accounts, Blizzard has this week rolled out a new one button authenticator, which has been created to both provide added security for gamers but also make it easy for them to access their accounts.
The new mobile authenticator application complete with one button authorisation is available for both Android and iOS devices and is now available to download or update on your mobile smartphone or tablet device.
Blizzard explains a little more over on the official Play Overwatch website :
Enter the One-Button Authenticator! This update to the current Mobile Authenticator will allow you to securely log into your account by simply clicking Approve on your mobile device instead of entering a security code. Should you wish to use a security code to log in that option still remains available.
Whenever* a log in attempt occurs on your account you will be notified via the app and prompted to Approve or Deny the request. You can also approve log in requests with notifications on your mobile or smartwatch without even opening the app! We hope this will help ease the log in process for those of you that already have an authenticator and encourage those of you who don’t to give it a try.
You can find out more about authenticators on our Battle.net Authenticator FAQ.
