Blizzard has released an iPhone and iPod Touch application that works as an authenticator to help keep your World of Warcraft and accounts secure.

The Mobile Authenticator is only available in the US at the moment - perhaps because it requires merged and WOW accounts, something that's not yet possible in Europe and Asia.

Blizzard says that versions for other mobile phones are also in the works for the future.

It works just like the existing keychain authenticator, generating a one-time security code you'll need to enter each time you log in. However, unlike the keychain authenticator, the mobile app is free of charge.

You can read more about the Mobile Authenticator at the official FAQ.
