Blizzard tightening security of Diablo III ahead of Auction House launch

by | @AttackFanboy | on June 11, 2012

Ahead of the real money auction house launch for Diablo III, Blizzard is tightening security for the game. The developer is making some “key changes related to the account-security measures required to use Battle.net,” and will also make updates to the Terms of Use for Diablo III to cover themselves legally.

Blizzard is taking this real-money launch very seriously. To them, account security is of utmost importance. In order for players to access their Battle.net Balances, players will be required to have a Battle.net Authenticator attached to their account.

“While we understand that this creates an extra step for players during the login process, we believe this added layer of account protection will help foster a safer auction house environment for all of our players,” Blizzard said in a recent post on the Diablo III forums.

The real money auction house is scheduled to arrive later this month for Diablo III.
