    I swear if I had a dollar for everytime I heard someone say that the very week they got hacked for the first time in WoW, I could retire now and buy an island.

    For real, it's pretty astounding that their argument is that it hasnt happened to them yet. It's also hysterical that they believe that clicking links or falling for a phishing scam is the only way to get hacked. Truly ignorant. There's a reason information security/assurance is a multi billion dollar industry in both the private and public sector. With what's available now, there's little reason to rely on single factor authentication alone.

    And seriously, why does anyone care? Make it an option, if you want to leave your account vulnerable, fine, who cares, add it as an option for the rest of us who dont believe there's some magical bubble surrounding our computers unless we click a link.

    Authenticators are like condoms
    Yes, you can take the risk and use other methods of protection...
    But an additional layer doesn't ever hurt
    Makes the experience a bit different, but better safe than sorry

    Well it stops keyloggers, and being a network admin i get my staff to do this, its a must. If you dont take any precautions, you deserve it imo.

    My roomate finally broke down and got an authenticator 3 months ago. THE DAY it arrived he got hacked before he could apply it to his account. There aren't enough "I told you so"s in the world for that .

    Sir, if you're a network admin and think an on-screen keyboard is secure enough to use in place of tokens, you should be fired

    That seems like a pretty damn magical hack to me.

    None of you seem to know what a keylogger is or how it operates.
    you could have picked it up months ago. Yes, YOU got it. Anyways fella's. gonna leave it at that. No hope here with people that think you get magicly comprimised just for playing a MMO.
    Or to be specific seeing how you will tear apart that sentence...
    compromised for playing a mmo 7 months ago.

    I agree fully. Don't feel secure at all w/out one.

    Wot?
    Seriously?
    He was gone for 7 months
    What hacker keeps a password for a video game account for 7 months?
    Chances are very, very good that particular account was cracked using random passwords until one worked
    This is possible, by the way, unless the company in question temporarily locks an account after X failed attempts. In fact, this is the exact reason higher-security programs/locations temporarily lock accounts after 3-5 failed attempts
    Yeah, the arguments against tokens here are just amusing

    It wasn't " my arguement". I made a statement that you disagree with but it wasn't the end all be all reason I opt to not bother with a authenticator.
    I love how people presume, and jump to conclusions.

    I absolutely loved my iPhone authenticator for Blizzard. My daughter used the dongle. As Rift grows in popularity, our accounts will also focus more in the sights of the black hats. An authenticator is a great way to help counter an attack, and I would be all for it.

    I would pay for an authenticator app (Andriod/iOS).
