Unfortunately Blizzard accounts have been getting hacked left, right and centre and when you sign up for the authenticator it recommends using the SMS security to avoid getting locked out of your account. I signed up and started getting spam. So I do nothing and I risk my account being hacked; I sign up for protection and get subjected to spam. Thanks Blizzard.
