Started the account recovery process and now I'm locked out and I've been warned that if this happens 2 more time they won't unlock it and I'll be forever banned!
Something I'm noticing now is that they don't have any additional security questions to make this kind of thing harder. The only option they offer for additional security is connected to a phone or an app. (app = phone in my mind) Long story short if I don't want to trust them with my phone info then security is limited at best.
Heh, no fucking way I'm putting your app on my phone or giving you the number Blizzard. I did add additional security to my email though, hopefully google can handle that...since they all but "own" my phone anyway...
Haha, I've been hacked too. I realized that it happened when a friend saw me online. I logged in, and someone added an authenticator to my account. It was pretty painless to recover my account and change my password. The guy actually didn't sell or take any of my stuff. In fact, he levelled my main char further and equipped him full of better equipment. My char is now level 59. Funny thing is that the stash is full of gold farming equipment that requires lvl 60. I'm guessing I was going to be this gold farmer's next bot. Now I have some pretty solid loot. Too bad I'm completely bored of the game.
