    Remote AH Frustration

    So I was messing around yesterday and noticed that I have an AH viewer on my Mobile Armory app (I could have sworn it used to only be the Armory, but I digress). After drooling over auctions at various points in the day, I decided to sub last night before bed.

    So I get all excited this morning when I see that Netherweave Bags are completely gone from the AH, and my tailor just made about 40 of them last night. So I set about trying to throw some up on the AH

    .........only to be hit by a prompt for an Authenticator.

    I'm at work, man! My Authenticator is at home! And, no, I don't want to use the Authenticator app because a) too many horror stories and b) I don't want to have my phone next to me when I'm sitting at my desktop.

    Alas, I either let the opportunities slide by or I bite the bullet and carry my phone around even more than I do already.

    It's too bad you can't associate an Authenticator with *just* the mobile AH, because then I could make this work.

    Just FYI, I use the android authenticator app, and it's super easy with the remote ah app. You type in your password and hit enter, and it says "mobile authenticator detected, click 'yes' to import the authentication code". Then you click the button and log in, never even having to open the authenticator app itself.

    Do you have to do it for every auction? I'm curious how integrated they make the authenticator.

    My main issue is I don't want to be beholden to my phone to play the game when I'm at a computer. I'd rather have a physical Authenticator (then I have the issue of lugging the Authenticator itself around with me).

    You have to do it just to open a session, then you can post/buy all you want. The session expires after some minutes not using the app.

    What i don't like is to have to enter the password each time .

    I did the same thing the first day I subscribed. Now my authenticator is on the keychain with my house key so I always have it.
