In Facebook have the ability to use USB mass storage as an electronic key

Security specialist Facebook brad hill (Brad Hill) told the users of the social network of innovation, which is the ability to use USB drive as dongle.


He, like other experts, recommends the use of two-factor authentication to better protect their personal data. When you log in to Facebook you enter the password, as well as additional code that comes on your mobile phone. However, the use of this method does not allow to guarantee the security of data.



Instead of having to use the code, you can use a USB drive that will be registered as an electronic key. Such keys can be purchased in various companies, including Yubico. Keys use security standard Universal 2nd Factor (U2F).


When using this key, you are fully protected from phishing scams, in addition, you can use the same key to protect other accounts (Google, Dropbox, GitHub, Salesforce).


It is reported that the new authentication method is already available in Russia.
