After the problems I had with the wow security dongle (mine stopped working, had to phone up and give blizzard a copy of my passport to remove it), I'd go for the phone app :P

OH it says those are fine. It just says SELECT android/blackberry. Just curious what select means.

I won't use phone authenticators ever again. Twice I've had a software update to my phone break the authenticator's certificate which resulted in a painful process of calling support and trying to get them to fix my account (after asking several hundred questions in an attempt to accuse me of trying to steal the account.)

Now... this was in 2 other games. But the concept is the same. If anything changes on your phone, such as the version of the software running, the authenticator is considered compromised and stops working until you have customer support re-validate it manually.

There are some ways around this, such as removing the authenticator from your account before doing every software update on your phone, then readding it afterwards. But who wants to deal with that kind of hassle?

Dongle for me

I'd imagine that it's just a catchall phrase since you cannot ever be 100 percent sure it will run on every version and iteration of Android devices. That is the one thing the Iwhatever has going for it, if it runs on one it will run on any.

I'd suppose that if you have an Android device from the past few years you will be okay. Of course, that could all be wrong, too.
