Avatar8 writes: WoW Insider announced the WoW authenticator, a RSA-like fob that will be associated with your WoW account and will generate a six digit code for verification upon login to the client. With the history of account hacking and scandals, this is no surprise and actually sounds like a smart move on Blizzard's part. Blizzard will charge $6.50 for the fob. Question is, should this be included? Is the extra protection worth it? Is this simply forcing people who share accounts long distance (a stupid act IMO) to buy individual accounts and pay for transfers? On a broader perspective, will other businesses and services follow suit and offer fobs? Google fob, Amazon fob or PayPal fob? How long before we see a single universal RSA fob that links all of our accounts?
