A couple weeks ago I took a poll of fellow WoW players to see how many are authenticating. The results from this very unscientific poll were encouraging – out of 477 who voted, 310 use a Blizzard authenticator to protect their account. 167 do not. Two thirds of those already using an authenticator at the time of the poll had been using it before the Core Hound pet was released as an in-game reward for having an authenticator connected to your account. The comments are an interesting read, with stories from various readers of why they do or don’t use an authenticator. Thanks to all who participated!

authenticator_survey*NPChloe will be back next week, hopefully – we’re having technical problems with the scanner. I doubt she has time to make a diary entry this week anyway. Looks like she’s been busy!
