Google Wants to Kill Your Password | News & Opinion | PCMag.com.
If you have followed my advice, you have enabled two step authentication to access your Google account. Once you sign in with your Google ID and password, you receive a text message or email with another code to enter before you can gain access. And, hopefully, you have a strong password, with both letters and numbers, along with special characters or punctuation or capital letters. Now, Yubikey has created a small USB dongle that will log you in if inserted in a USB port on the computer. I don't get that this is more secure. If you have ever lost one of these little things, or lost your keys, you know what I mean. I would rather someone have to steal my smart phone in order to gain access. That is something that stays next to me all the time. Of course, nothing is completely secure. But, you do what you can.
