I really agree. The entire point of the authenticator is that it's a physical token you have to have in your hand in order to log into a WoW account. You can't remotely access it, no matter how hard you try. An iphone, on the other hand, is just a separate device you'd have to hack in order to access a WoW account...but you can do it all remotely. No gold seller on the planet is going to break into my house to steal my authenticator, but they might hack my iphone.What's worse, since the iphone authenticator is all in software, a hacker could basically COPY your authenticator. Rather than just stealing the temporary code, they could use their copy of your authenticator app to log into your WoW account at any time, or any number of times, or remove the authenticator from your account.I'll say that an authenticator app is better than nothing, but the physical authenticator token is MUCH better than the app.
