    I just got to .595. I was wondering what all these "authenticator" apps are. For example, LastFM Authenticator. LinkedIn Authenticator, etc.

    Were these there before? I never noticed them (perhaps because I went to Apex right away.)

    Is it safe to freeze/remove these apps?

    I believe they are the login authenticators for the "social networking" application.

    You can freeze them. You won't be able to use your social networking apps, i:e facebook, but if you don't use any of the social networking it won't hurt anything. DO NOT UNINSTALL THEM! Should you decide to flash your phone with a different rom you will have to SBF back to stock first.

    I use the "multi-select" function in Root Explorer to bulk move them to a directory on my SD card. That way I can easily move them back if I want to.

    Check the sticky at the top of the forum, there are a few you shouldn't remove.
