Blizzard Entertainment strengthens online players’ safety

AB_AuthenticatorVivendi, whose business activities are based on the subscription economic model, collects data intended for managing commercial relations with its customers. The protection and security of personal data is therefore one of the group’s priority areas for action in sustainable development.

Thus, since the end of 2011, Blizzard Entertainment has been offering optional tools that give its players an additional layer of security to help prevent unauthorized account access. One example is the Battle.net® Authenticator, a device that lets players connect to their accounts with a unique digital code that changes regularly. There is also a free mobile version of this tool, the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator.

Moreover, Blizzard Entertainment provides its players with the BattleTag™ nickname system, which enables them to receive many of the benefits of the company’s Real ID communication system, such as chatting and staying connected with friends across multiple Blizzard Entertainment games, while remaining anonymous. A player’s BattleTag™ is a handle, chosen by the player, that is used to identify him or her in Blizzard Entertainment’s latest games as well as on the company’s websites, community forums, and more.


Battle Tag is a trademark, and Battle.net and Blizzard Entertainment are trademarks or registered trademarks of Blizzard Entertainment, Inc., in the U.S., and/or other countries.
