Maybe if your posts were more measured and polite you wouldn't be getting such sarcastic replies?

Well even I don't support ignorance and mindless begging for something without research yourself first, I really hate ******** comments such are "under what rock are you sleeping".
What exactly do you expect to get after that remark?
"Sorry kind sir, my rock is currently broken, and Im unable to move it and read info about security key"
Well works in both ways, he ranted about one time password, and yeah some of us do have kids that DONT have iPhone, Android, Blackberry (sorry my rock is poor and I cannot afford it for my kid, and I dont think he actually need one, and security key for a game is sad excuse for getting one) and hardware key is both out of stock, and out from Europe so his original rant regarding annoyance with one time password is perfectly valid.

Also lots of ISP's under my poor sad rock over here issue dynamic IP's and most of the time you get different since lease duration of IP addresses is extremely low. So instead of being paranoid they should try to develop better system. And guess what, my Google account was hacked by having my password, and yet Google didnt allowed that connection since it figured that its not my regular behavior and what not. Never got leaked anything since attacker never managed to login and guess what I dont have security key on my Google account.

Yes he/she (OP) could do some reading, but replying in a way that might bring out more rude reply's is not the way of helping. More like trolling and desire to say something even if you dont have anything smart to say...

My 2 cents anyway.
TL : DR
Those are not the droids we are looking for; Move along

It is funny, I think that if you have dynamic IP, the oh-so-very-popular-for-some-reason Steam will do the exact same thing, sending you a email with password to authorize the new IP. But you do not see anyone raging about that...

Get a Security Key as either a FREE Android/iOS app, or buy the keychain fob for it (sadly, official site has them "out of stock" for some reason, but they can be bought elsewhere from what i understand), and all problems are solved.

"Out of Stock"

Having to run your mail programm, open the mail, copy the password, paste into SWTOR or your browser, and close the mailer again is what the British call an embuggerance .

Not to mention the mails accumulating every time you play, or log into this web site.

The problem is that the physical security key fobs are out of stock from official site, and there has been no official word (to my knowledge) on when they will become available again. And not everyone has Android or Apple device

Apparently under US law the physical security key can no longer be sold outside of the US and Canada. That scuppers the rest of the world's players.

I'm sure that I'm not the only subscriber to not own a smartphone, so a phone "app" is about as useful as a chocolate teapot to me.

Well I have a few words for you.

I am not wasting the money on that security key for this game, It's not my bank account, if somebody wants to go through the trouble to hack my account, good for them.

This is just an attempt by ea and bioware to annoy people into buying that security key so they don't have to deal with this ****, and I'm not falling for it.

i myself do not care for having to wait on an e-mail everytime I try to log in on the game. I have played many games online over the years and this the first I have ever had to do this. I do not want to add a security key as it is just one more thing for me to lose. What does one do when the battery runs down on the code generator? I have not seen a way to open it and change battery.
