The app is just bad. Either I’m logged out or I am stuck on reconnecting. Though, the app is working fine for me now but I don’t understand how I am meant to log into the mobile app when i have an authen
They reverted that pretty quick after OW2 launched lol.
But I hope whoever thought that was a good idea is no longer employed at a video game company - or at least making decisions.
It’s still part of the new account process, existing accounts were just grandfathered in.
I was going to ask the same question. My authenticator fob is still going strong since I bought it Many, Many years ago. I don’t want to replace it. It doesn’t require a buggy app and it’s a lot faster than opening my phone and trying to log into the mobile app.
There’s an exact video of a bald guy plotting out what happens when you mess around. It’s been labeled old ergo eventually it won’t be supported/allowed, and I don’t think you wanna be left with a wet bag when that happens.
Knew this hammer was going to drop at some point.

What are you on about?
Just turn that on and be part of the millions that affected data aggregation for companies like Meta (Facebook). Works no different for blizz.
Physical authenticators should still work fine if you have one attached.
But the Battle.net Android app does not have an authenticator widget like the old authenticator app, and I use that a lot. Can we have that added to the Battle.net app as well?
i hate that because i dont have a smart phone and i had to disconnect my physical authenticator when i changed phone numbers that now im forever stuck with out an authenticator on my account and i really want the pet
Download spyware to your phone so that when you lose your phone or change number you can get locked out of your account. So secure it’ll keep you out of your own account! Great right?
So we get 4 more bag slots in addition to the four+pet we got for installing the old authenticator for a total of 8 additional bag slots?
Weird, as nothing is on the Battle.net app for this (makes sense since it hasn’t updated in forever), and just checked the Play Store, says the app hasn’t had an Update since January.
I honestly don’t want a garbage app bloating up the phone. Authenticator worked just fine for my needs and was unobtrusive. If the app stops working then I’m just removing authentication.
There is no point in removing a simple app that works just to replace it with a bunch of bnet garbage I don’t need.
If you cared about security, then there would be as many viable choices as possible.
Is this different than the old one? I’ve always had an authenticator
Says they killing off the old one and the authenticator in now integrated in the battlenet app.
Just installed it today after seeing the post. I hope it’s not just a battery drainer that dings me every 2-3minutes with irrelevant things while I’m trying to sleep or have a meeting or driving. I just want the authenticator.
Yeah, I’ve had that newer version. No issues so far.
I’d rather not let the company have access to my phone. Sucks I’m griefed into having 4 less bag spots and loss of the ability to edit LFG finder titles, but I have hard stances on certain things.
until the battery dies:O(
