WoW.com Pro-Tip:Even though you just started, but the authenticator. It is well worth the $6.50, even if you are a rookie.

I was wary of the authenticator. My little brother snagged one for me and gave it to me, but I put off setting it up for like two months. I just figured using it regularly would be this monumental pain in the backside.Anyone who shares that trepidation, don't worry about it. Once I set it up, the thing became essentially instinct after the third time I used it. It might be less convenient if I played at a computer other than my home desktop, but as it stands the thing is always sitting right by my monitor.

If you have an iPhone/iPod Touch, the authenticator app is definitely a worthy alternative. My main problem with it on my iPod Touch is that my usual habit is: 1. Sit at computer 2. Plug in iPod to charge/sync 3. Launch WoW 4. Get the authenticator dialog and realize my iPod is busy downloading podcasts.... :(But once I reordered that habit to sync only after I was safely logged into WoW, no problems at all!
