    Default Authenticators

    Hey, I wanted to see if there are any plans for alternate authenticators? You have the one for iPhone and the Android phone, but not any other options. You have to forgive me as I only use my phone for calls and texts, which makes it hard to want to purchase a $500.00 phone for a free authenticator; I guess I'm old fashioned. I was just wondering if there is possibly an alternate route for the protection, as I'm seeing a large number of hackers/gold farmers, etc...

    I'd love to see key-chain ones as well, seeing as I have no interest in a smart phone.

    I would like to see a hardware based one so I don't have to worry about these points:
    A) have to worry about upgrading my android phone (therefore possibly causing a problem accessing the authenticator)
    B) my phone has power

    neither of my points are a big problems nor are they faults with the software authenticators. I just prefer an hardware authenticator. It would go well with my WoW one.

    I would love to have an authenticator that didn't require me to have an iphone or android phone.

    I would love an authenticator that would actually protect my account and not just the game login.

    Also it is far cheaper. Keychain version would cost $6 to $8 USD vs 300-500 for smart phone.

    Looks like a great deal until you get into the contracts and how badly these companies screw you with monthly costs.

    Well I do not have a cell phone nor plan to ever get one. Guess too many years working in the national cancer registry to like them.
