If you use Paypal, it's time to upgrade your account with this free feature that Paypal offers. It's called "Paypal Security Key". The PayPal Security Key creates random temporary security codes that help safeguard your PayPal account when you log in. It comes in 2 types, each with different advantages:
- Security key: You carry this small credit-card sized device with you. It creates a unique security code on the go.
- Mobile phone security key: You can sign up to get security codes sent by text message to your mobile phone. (recommended)
If you use Gmail or Google Apps (this includes all Seibertron.com staff members with official Seibertron.com email addresses), you should enable Google's two-step authentication process for your account(s). 2-step verification drastically reduces the chances of having the personal information in your Google account stolen by someone else. Why? Because hackers would have to not only get your password and your username, they'd have to get a hold of your phone.
