What is a security key and how is it used?
A hardware security key is a small device that you can purchase from a manufacturer and hang on your keychain. So you can connect with other devices via USB and Bluetooth. Since 2017, Facebook began to support these keys for its web version, now this function reaches the mobile app.
It is very easy to use, you just have to configure your key with your account through the Facebook settings, in the section Security and login.
By using a security key, you are giving your social network an additional layer of security. Since once configured, you will have to present two verification elements to be able to log in, instead of just entering your password. In general, the second key is a numerical code that will arrive to your email or your cell phone by means of an SMS.
This new option can be used both by users who want to protect their information, and by companies that need to increase security and protect their data.
