Paypal Finally Wises Up With Ultra Secure Account Gadgetry

31 07 2007

Straight from Gizmodo, Pay Pal is now offering a great way to NOT get your account hacked.


Gadgets: Paypal’s Security Key Protects You From Phishers – Gizmodo
Paypal’s security and phishing troubles have gotten so bad, they’ve decided to provide a hardware solution to the problem. [The] upcoming Security Key from Paypal generates a unique one-time-use password every 30 seconds, which you use along with your username and regular password to log into your account.

It costs money ($5), but if you’re a serious eBay buyer or seller, or even if you just have a couple hundred in an account, this “security key” is a smart investment. Big corporations have their important peeps carry security keys (or KeyFobs) just to have secure access to their VPN. Or it could be a great gift for that friend of yours that’s had his or her Pay-Pal account hacked like three times, and still doesn’t get that Pay-Pal will NEVER send you an email asking to verify your user name and password.
