I had the authenticator on my phone for awhile, but after having to reinstall my phone i had to go through the process of getting it removed. Obviously i'd rather do that than get it hacked, but i was hesitant to use the authenticator again because i assumed being a safe password person and all i would be fine.
now i am thinking that is not the case
Thats what they say. But anytime I have been hacked, numerous friends get hacked during a very close time period, just seems fishy that hacks are in waves of sorts. Also I've been hacked after fresh copies of Windows (some will say, well maybe they had your info long ago and just saved it).
Honestly I say run an authenticator of some sort. I only visit TPU, GN and thats about it for websites, check my processes a lot, and run AV's, IP blockers, and other things. Yet I've still had my account hacked. I truly believe there is a leak somewhere in Blizzard, WoW gold = Real World money. A leak of passwords to take gold and sell would be an extremely easy source of income.
