    It's the Authenticator. You can get a keychain as well. I actually have a keychain, but my Droid stays with me... my keys go in the bedroom. So I switched over.

    I really never saw the point of the authenticator.. just seemed like an added nuisance just to log into the game. People step up all the time talking about how they've been hacked and how this prevents that. I don't buy it. I had played the game since launch and not once has anyone but myself ever logged into the account.. and my password really isn't that complex.

    I guess the authenticator would help in the case that you have ever given out your details.. or are dumb and go to sites that install keyloggers.

    Well I never gave out my info and got hacked. Its there for the taking and pretty soon will be manditory so you might as well grab the free one. Other wise post your login info so I can have your stuff.

    People are getting hacked that are not being "Dumb" these days, and the hackers are getting smarter by adding an authenticator to the account. Anyway, yes this is FINALLY here, after I already bought mine about 2 weeks ago. It does give an annoying message every time if you're rooted though.

    Trust me, I've seen enough people in my guild, as well as others who get hacked, to say that having one of these is important. It's always the people who say "I don't need one" who get hacked. :D

    Yeah, I was one of those guys! Never got hacked but found it pointless and tedious, until people I don't consider dumb started getting hacked randomly. Who knows, that could of been me a week ago and I'd of missed our Lich King kill tonight! (Yeah, I'm a wow nerd)

    Awesome. This is the only thing that has me still turning on my ipod touch. No more.
