Show everyone in Azeroth that you’re serious about account security with man’s (and orc’s) best friend! Beginning today, any World of Warcraft player who protects his or her Battle.net account using either a Blizzard Authenticator or the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator will get their very own in-game Core Hound Pup, a fiery and feisty guard-dog pet. Adopting this molten mutt is easy: If you’ve got any kind of Authenticator attached to your account, you’ll find your new canine companion waiting for you the next time you log in.

We’ve also just released a new Blizzard Authenticator token featuring a Core Hound-themed look and design. Click here to order one through the online Blizzard Store. For more information on account security and the various Authenticator options available to you, check out our Account Security and Authenticator pages.
