Diablo 3 Real Money Auction House Requires Authenticator For Security

Diablo 3 Auction House Introduces Real Money Transactions

The imminent launch of the real money auction house in Diablo 3 has prompted Blizzard to release an official "terms of use" breakdown that makes clear the requirement that all who use the service will be forced to employ a Battle.net Autheticator for security. The Authenticator is already an optional component of Diablo 3 for all users, but it's now a requirement for those who want to mix real money with their virtual items.

The most convenient option for authenticating your Diablo 3 account is the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator, a smartphone app that you download and fire up whenever the game asks you to enter in a numerical code upon starting up. The gamers of the world who are without smartphones can alternatively buy a $6.50 keychain fob. This post previously stated that you could also opt for a dial-in authenticator, but the Battle.net FAQ clearly states that this option isn't available for Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 users.

The Authenticator continues to be optional -- but recommended -- for all users and a necessity for those who want to add money to their Battle.net Balance from the real money auction house.
