Facebook introduced One-Touch enabled USB Security Key, YubiKey for better login safety now.
Yes, the Facebook team finally seems to have found a way which is much secure than the older 2-Factor authentication features. Precisely, it’s a Touch Enabled USB Security Key for better login safety for Facebook.
And interesting thing is that it was not developed by Facebook Team. A company namely, Yubico did design this thing. And check out the words from its CEO, Stina Ehrensvard.
Now is the time to reclaim the internet. To all of us who own it and to all of us who are constantly re-creating it: Let’s not let the fraudsters limit the potential of what the internet is and can be!
Yubico provides hardware security solutions for strong two-factor authentication using Universal 2nd Factor(U2F), One Time Password(OTP), Personal Identity Verification(PIV) etc. Not only Facebook but also Google, GitHub, DropBox, SalesForce and Symantec also joined hands with Yubico.
Advantages of using Yubico Products:
- Protection from Phishing attacks.
- Faster Login Process.
- Interoperable in nature.
