I am thrilled with this change! I've left my authenticator at work before and just had to forgo any WoW or Starcraft II. Plus, the extra amount of time it takes to log in with an authenticator drives me crazy. I know it is only a few extra seconds, but it can feel like such a hassle. This sounds like a practical solution.

Now you'll just have the opposite problem. You'll stop using your Authenticator because you don't need it anymore. Then you'll go on a trip, not thinking to bring it because you never need it anymore. You get to your destination and are either A) Unable to play for the duration, or B) Have to call Blizz and take it off your account so you can play, therefore leaving your account wide open for attacking.At the worst, having to take the extra couple of seconds is a habit, and gives me a warm fuzzy knowing that I won't be logging in to an empty char screen.
