Mullen - That's an extremely narrow-sighted view you have. The cost of the authenticator is not the issue. I have spent hundreds of dollars on WoW over the last 4 (almost 5) years, NOT including the cost of maintaining a fluctuating number of accounts (usually 2, but up to 5 at times). However, the authenticator isn't available in my country (New Zealand, or in Australia, when I lived there for the past 6 years). The authenticator is not an option for everybody, and the alternative purchasing an iPhone solely to use the authenticator is ridiculous. If you have an iPhone, by all means use the functionality since its there. But the vast majority of the population of the world do NOT have iPhones (in fact, all those who do are such a small percentage it could be treated as a rounding issue within margin of error and statistics would then prove that nobody owns an iPhone! Ah.. statistics. They're wonderful).But seriously, being vigilant is the answer. The authenticator is only an option for some players, I believe in fact under 40% of the player base even qualify for purchasing these.
