Wow, only 50p? Definately get one if you haven't got one already! This is a great layer of added security and at 50pence that is a bargin!!

Edit: especially when you have articles like this: http://www.wowhead.com/?blog=101004

Well, works like a charm but a total waste of 50p, better to invest it in a small icecream or flatten it on the railroad track.
My cellphone expired so I couldn't resink my authenticator. Had to call Blizzard to remove this check from my account. After sending them all kind of info and waiting for a week I can finally login again.

Instead of using such a security tool I force myself to change my password every month or so. Easier and just as safe I hope.
Have to remind myself to use "w0wp@ss" as password now.... Damn, need to change it again 'coz you all know my password now!
Mental note to myself: "Tuss3np13r".... Ah, not again!!! Think, Tuss... Think!
Got it! My new password will be "* * * * * * * * * * *" :)

What happens if I lose my mobile phone after activating the Battle.net Mobile Authenticator?

Please contact Blizzard Customer Support if your phone is ever lost or stolen so that we can take appropriate action.

The keychain is so easy!

BUT

If you tend to party alot in the weekends and frequently lose your keys (like I do) leave that shit at home! Chain it to your PC or laptop, don't be a dick and lose your keys with your "keychain" audentificator tied to it! :| I already lost one, and that shit ain't funny.

Ordered an authenticator yesterday by ebay (new ones!)

Still don't understand those brickbrains of Blizzard why they don't accept paypal or money transfer... No, if you want to buy from them you need a creditcard (which is quite uncommon in the Netherweed)
