My new PayPal security key

Now that I've made the jump to a premier PayPal account, I decided to go ahead and order the security key. It came on Monday, just over a week after I ordered it.

I was surprised by how small the PayPal security key is:



It doesn't look like it would be this small in the pictures on PayPal's site, so I photographed it with a quarter to show you how small it actually is.

So far I like it. It's not too much of a hassle to use it when I sign in, and I haven't had any problems with not being able to access my account or anything. Apparently there's even a way you can get temporary access if you don't have your security key with you.

And of course, it's especially nice knowing that it'll be at least a little more difficult for a hacker to gain access to my account now.
