Blizzard has issued an alert to Battle.net subscribers, advising Diablo 3, Starcraft and World of Warcraft players to remove the Dial-in Authenticator security measure in favour of the more recent Battle.net Authenticator and Battle.net Mobile Authenticator.
"Please note that we have removed the Dial-in Authenticator from our Battle.net security options. If you’re currently using the Dial-in Authenticator, it will continue to work normally until August 15, 2012, at which point we’ll be removing it from any accounts that have it attached," reads the reminder.

"We’re fully committed to account security, but please keep in mind that it’s ultimately a team effort," adds Blizzard. "While making use of the available security options can go a long way in helping to protect your characters and items, it’s also important to be aware of the other things you can do to help ensure your account is as secure as possible.
