Blizzard: WoW may not ask for Authenticator at constant log-in spots

Blizzard’s announced that users who’ve chosen to tag Authenticators to their World of Warcraft accounts won’t be required to provide details every time they sign-in if they’re constantly logging in at recognised locations.

The company said in a forum post that it had recently “updated our authentication system to intelligently track your log-in locations,” meaning you may not be asked to use a key to log into the game if it recognises your IP.

Blizzard says that the move is “to make the Authenticator process less intrusive when we’re sure the person logging in to your account is you,” and that it’s “improving the Authenticator system to ensure the same or greater security, while improving and adding features to make having one a more user friendly experience.”
