Nice to see the people too cheap to spend seven dollars can protect their account.

Cost was never the issue. Nice to see people who have no clue what they're talking about still showing off their ignorance on the internets.

Too cheap is rather unfair.I know several people from my realm had issues getting Blizzard to ship it to their home in Canada, and to the ones that they would ship to at massively inflated shipping costs, upwards of $20.

At the very least, it should shut up the trade trolls who insist that the authenticators are simply a blatant extortion scam (as if using scare tactics to extort $7 is somehow more profitable than offering a $25 sparklepony).

Every time I see someone complain that Authenticators are just a money-making scam, I let them know they cost $25-$50, and they are provided at a loss.And to the OP, some people can't get an Authenticator. Shipping to Australia is $20. Other places are higher. Some places they don't ship to at all.

it's only available to US residents, but i just set it up because I don't want to lose the little plastic one and the app isn't on Palm phones.

I was planning on buying a keychain authenticator but they never had any in stock, I eventually decided to just use my phone.

"Nice to see the people too cheap to spend seven dollars can protect their account."Seven dollars? Sign me up!Last time i checked the keyfobs sold for 6 euro.... PLUS 60 euro S&H.And then they made the S&H free... and removed my country from the possible destinations list.

Time to step up to the 2000's and get a smartphone, free authenticator on iPhone and Android.

I started Wow when I lived in America but now I live in the Ukraine. I do have an authenticator but I have no idea how long the batteries last and how the hell I will get a new one when this one fails. :-(
