Authenticator Hell

Hey!

Really hopeful someone can provide a solution for this because it's super frustrating. Is there ANY way to launch Diablo 3 (Skip Lancher) and NOT be forced to authenticate?

I am prompted to authenticate every time, even if I ONLY log into my first account and no other accounts. If I hit logout and try to log back in, I get prompted to authenticate. Out of desperation I even copied the "Authenticator" registry key from Battle.net into Battle.net-ISBoxer/charname as it was the only key that wasn't present. It appears I might be able to resolve this by using the launcher but I am deeply hopeful there is a no launcher solution as well.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/solutions!

I suspect if you remove the authenticator option from your Battle.Net account, then you will no longer be required to authenticate.


Other than that, this post on dual-boxing.com explains the issue and how to work with an authenticator with less annoyance.

As the information in my original post illustrates, I have taken the steps in that guide, they do not appear to be applicable for Diablo.

Re: Authenticator Hell

There is a freeware program called winauth that simulates the authentication app - you can put multiple authentications in there and it has a list and you can copy and paste - that's what I do with my 4 accounts, it is a bit of a PITA but it's not terrible.

Also you can remove the dual facor authentication from your accounts and you won't ever have to enter one. You do that on Blizzards website.

Re: Authenticator Hell

Hi,

I did back to Diablo from long time and have the same problem...

I always did have configured 2way auth and never haven't problem with this... what was change? Blizz change smth with Battle.net app/accounts or it's Innerspace change?
Even if I try place shortcut from Innerspace on my desktop called "Diablo III - Diablo III (64-bit) - Skip Launcher" and run only one client I still need to auth with pass and authenticator.

Return to Diablo 3
