When setting up your online accounts, security is of utmost importance. How often do you hear about someone's account being stolen or see a story in the news about some company being hacked? Just this week, Capital One suffered a breach.
Setting up 2FA can help protect your account from being compromised, now and in the future. Usually, when you set up 2FA, you receive a code via text message that must be entered before you can log in. Unfortunately, text messages can be easily intercepted, and by using a hardware key only you have access to, it can help further secure your accounts.
By using a hardware key, it adds a new layer of protection that cannot be passively stolen or intercepted. Even if someone did happen to take the key from you physically, they would still need to know your username and password for it to even be useful.

The Titan Security Key bundle helps put your online security in your hands. The two hardware key bundle is more secure than text messages when it comes to 2FA and could help prevent your online accounts from being compromised by hackers.
