Postby Janitor » Mon Sep 26, 2016 5:21 pm

This guide will show how to attach Google Authenticator to your WoW-Mania account.

The authenticator adds an extra layer of security to your account but can also get you locked out of it if not done correctly so pay attention on each step.

Please remember to take note and save your code.


STEP 1: Download Google Authenticator AND the Barcode Scanner apps.

Download them to your phone or tablet. If you don't have the Barcode Scanner and try to use Google Authenticator, you will be prompted to download it.

You'll find it under "Account" when logged in.
