Feb 21st 2012 4:13PM Squishy all your troll like comment shows is that you Either have not understood or have not read the comments above.
Ive had an authenticator since they launched "When the P+P charge was around double the cost of the authenticator itself". my password is as secure as it can be and still be within the bound of normal human memory. And as i said my battlenet email is exclusive to that purpose and has never been given out elsewhere.

Battlenet id using the email address required to log in to your account is a flaw in the security of the system and one that Blizzard have tacitly acknowledged with the upcoming introduction of battletag's "Which should have been there in the first place avoiding all the issue's there have been along the way"
or to put in simplisticly for you."excluding the obvious pc firewall Anti virus etc"
I currently have 3 layers of security to my wow account "secret email, password and authenticator"
Using one of these services or realid i effectivly only have 2 "Password and authenticator"

Which is more secure?

Feb 21st 2012 2:54AM Kimpossibru, Its all well and good saying openraid only reveals you raidid and is only revealed when nesscesary. That Doesnt Change the Fact its sitting on Your Database and I would have to take it on trust that you would not use it or sell it to others for hacking/phising attempts.

Twitterland system seems better to me id its as folks have said here as would be a smaller element of risk, but still to my mind only a fool would share their battlenet id before battletags are introduced.

Just to note i do take my account security Very seriously, I Have had an authenticator Since launch and an Email Address Created exclusivly For my Battlenet Account And Used Nowhere Else.
Unfortunatly Anysystem that forces you to reveal part of what i would consider secure informaition "Ie Any part of you login detail's" Is inherently flawed from a safety perspective

Feb 20th 2012 5:07PM To follow the disclaimer.
I dont trust these sites, i suspect more than one has been setup as an easyway to gather a nice database of battlenet email addresses for hackers to target.#
May investigate it when battletags are active but till then i wont go so far as even looking at these services
