@ Sparcrypt You're an IT tech? I work in internet repair and you have no idea how many IT techs call in because they forgot to plug in their modem or restart their computer or something simple because they feel they're too smart for something that simple to happen. This is not meant to berate you or anyone else. I'm just saying that level of security and knowledge only work so well. I was never a fan of the authenticator but I got the mobile authenticator anyway. I discovered the true value of the authenticator when my Ipod needed to be reformatted. Since nobody had the authenticator, it was impossible to get into my account and I had to call Blizzard. I was grateful to discover the high level of security they used to verify my account. Now I'm happily levelling alts again and the authenticator is NEVER leaving my account or my side EVER again. Knowledge only goes so far. it isn't only "stupid people" that can get hacked. Sometimes those who's "knowledge of computer security is higher then the average reader" get hacked too.
