So, apparently there have been a lot of user accounts hacked. Is everyone here safe?

So far so good. At some point I may do the mobile authenticator entirely but thus far I have a pretty good password.

I have my Mobile Authenticator. Easy to setup, easy to use. Make it that more secure

I'm considering a physical authenticator, myself. Something about a mobile app seems less secure.

Same RSA mechanism, different delivery.

I have both and since I know 1. my phone is with me always and locks it self. 2. I have the restore and original serial numbers. I am ok.? I did test this and it took about 20min on hold but less than a minute with all the right information to remove it. I do have both but my phone is deffinatly easier cause it is with me

Yeah, under ideal circumstances I would go with the phone app too. I only ever play in one place, I have my RSA token from FFXI on a lanyard in a container on the coffee table, so it's simple enough to grab. I have my phone with me everywhere, and that's exactly why I don't want it on my phone. 1. My smartphone belongs to my employer, 2. I could lose or break the smartphone, 3. Someone could steal my smartphone, and 4. The token looks pretty cool. :)

The app is convenient as hell, but for my purposes the $6 token is totally worth it.

Right. Totally go token. I wouldn't rely on that if I didn't own my smartphone either. $6 is cheap too.

The unfortunate thing is that their shipping is apparently stupid. Next day shipping apparently means nothing. I ordered it like 4 days ago now and there hasn't been any kind of update. Perhaps they're getting a lot of orders due to the recent account hackage.

I bet they are. Id tell them because if you pay for next day shipping and you dont get it you need a refund.

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/26/2012 at 03:15am

I have submitted a ticket and haven't heard back, but with the authenticators, next day shipping is free anyway.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 05/26/2012 at 02:56pm

That makes sense.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 05/26/2012 at 02:57pm

Hope you get it soon. Is you account locked down yet or do you turn it on when it arrives?

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/28/2012 at 01:44am

You just assign it when it arrives. I finally got a response from Blizz. They mail them out once a week, and the next day option was there in error.
