So, when you log in to your account, you can use this USB security key.
While it means to carry another object over, such as in the keychain, offers a higher level of protection if. It is more effective than mobile apps and the verification by SMS message, which avoids that we may suffer “phishing” or anyone to interfere in our account.
Also they are worth being quite fast, as you only need to insert into the USB connector and we’ll immediately into our account. Is a new very interesting from Facebook, although of time only can be used with the browser web Chrome u Opera.
