While I agree with all the "who cares, secure your account" as the vendor is just a bonus, I must warn that it does NOT completely secure your account. If you still download lots of viruses, you can still lose your account. Nothing can secure your account, only add another layer.

*Edit* securing your account is a good idea.. but I am regretting it - it drives me crazy having to find my phone every time I want to login.
I hear ya, that's why I went ahead and bought the physical key. I always have my keys nearby and I don't have to worry about those days when I forget to charge my phone.

It's called having a secure system. I don't run around with no AV, anti-adware, anti-malware none of that. In the past 4 years, I have gotten 1 malicious thing on my computer, ONE.

How do you take it off once you secure if if wanted?

I never use the security key crap, never had my account hacked.

For $4-$6 for the key or free on the phone it's pretty cheap easy insurance for your account!

You can believe yourself completely secure, but if the account hackers want in, they will get in. For example, in Rift, the game's database was compromised and many people's accounts got hacked despite having done nothing at all. It can happen. Well worth $6 (or free phone app) to have that extra security layer.
