    @Anna, No because they still need the password. You can also order a new security key (which makes the old one invalid).

    hey

    Incredibly great thanks to ya!
    i have just enabled the authentication key in my Gmail account. Now as it is nearly a year from you so helpful article, It is under:
    Labels>Settings>Labs>Authentication icon for verified Senders

    Thanks!
    The other thing is the PayPal security key. Is it something that will secure the process of transaction?
    When I was setting up my PayPal account for my e-commerce platform, it asked me to issue a key on my site. It is kind of complicated.
    Can you write more about the security of PayPal and its simplifications for the e-commerce platforms/

    All the best
    Nicole

    The PayPal Security Key is defintely a MUSTHAVE. I know a guy who had his PayPal account hooked up to his bank account and someone hacked in and stole thousands. All could have been avoided if he had just gotten a security key. I get a text message whenever I try to log in with my code so nobody will ever be able to steal from my PayPal account unless they have my cell phone

    Yes, you definitely can’t allow yourself to be fooled by the phishing emails. They are not hard to spot, though I find. Even the professional-looking ones that I’ve seen can be pegged once you take a closer inspection.

    I feel secure using paypal. I have on more than one occasion had someone hack into my account, and made purchases that I did not authorize. This didn’t bother me because Paypal gave me the money back.

    Hi Dizi, No it will not charge you $5.00 when you generate a security key. I believe this is a one time fee.

    I don’t know of any other email client that does the PayPal’s Iconix identification right off the bat.

  27. Hi, thanks for this information, glad to read your posting here. I have question here, can PayPal’s Iconix email identification tool be used for other email service beside gmail?
