SOE Authenticators Now Available for $9.95

Written by Feldon on . Posted in International (Pro7Sat1)

SOE Security Authenticators are now available from SOE.com for $9.95 including domestic shipping and handling. They may be used on one or more Station accounts.

Pricing compares favorably to the WoW Battle.net security fobs which cost $6.50 plus shipping. Plus, you may use one SOE Authenticator on multiple Station accounts, a feature the Battle.net devices lack as of October 2010.

Note: Only after entering your credit card information does international shipping or handling rates appear. We’ve seen several reports that international shipping is more expensive than the security fob itself. In the range of $10-13 US, 10 Euros, $13 AUD, etc.

There is no word on when the announced free SOE Authenticator apps for iPhone, Android, and possibly other platforms will appear.

Check out our detailed guide SOE Puts Security in your Pocket — Vasco Security Fobs which we posted on July 11th.

    Do note they do charge you sales tax, depending where you live.

    I was charged $0.66 for sales tax living in Arizona.

    You can use the battle.net fobs on multiple accounts as well, I have one for three accounts.

    Just ordered mine. S&H was 10 Euro for Germany. The amount for S&H was shown before I had to confirm my order.

    stargrace, I corrected the article.

    Necromancer, they’re working on the free app for iPhone, Android, and I believe Blackberry.

    stargrace, I’ve corrected the correction. One authenticator per Battle.net account as of a change on October 2010. You may have been grandfathered in.

    Worth getting just for the collectible value.

    I think I will wait for the mobile version my phone is probably a little more robust than the authenticator.

    And of course, the website shows an error after entering the credit card number, so we’ll wait a bit.

    Shipping to the UK literally doubled the price. How they can justify a keyfob costing £7.99 shipping I’ll never know.

    While the battle.net authenticator is one per battle.net account, you can have multiple game accounts under a single battle.net account [and you really should if you have multiple personal accounts].

    Slight difference, but I believe it’s a situation that doesn’t really occur with SOE accounts.
