The option to remember your account name isn't entirely safe. Recent keyloggers have taken to the practice of deleting your WTF folder when the game is launched, causing WoW to generate a new WTF folder with a subfolder that has the same name as your account. The keylogger detects the folder creation in order to determine your account name, while using a keylogger to acquire your password.
