authenticators to the rescue!
 
I have been, for the past few years, a major world of ******** player but now that STO is out im all into this game! I think one of the smartest ideas they had was the authenticator to reduce hacking into player accounts.

Before hacking becomes a problem in STO i think authenticators should be sold, i'd buy one! :)

I was playing WoW starting with day one until about 4 months ago and didnt get hacked once.... nor did I have the Identicator.

While it is a nice idea to help players who are too stupid to create a save password and use an uncommon accountname itīs not really a necessity.

You know they are also for people who like an extra layer of protection.

You would have thought that they would have a better PM policy.
