Petition for dual factor authentication: security tokens

First off: yes i'm aware that the email "strong authentication" is available. however if your computer has been compromised by a key logger or something similar then ti's pretty easy for someone to gain access to your email as well, rendering the "security" useless

The only good form of dual authentication and true 100% protection for your poker account and the funds held inside is a security token. This is a physical device that you hold that displays a number (which changes very frequently) that you need to type in every time you want to log in. It offers complete protection because for someone to log into your account not only would they need to get your password, but they would also need to physically get your security token as well.


Please consider having a security token available for your website. I would happily pay money to buy the token so I can use it and keep my account safe. In the past other websites have made them available for vip points, which players are often happy to use to keep their accounts secure.



also, for those wondering, you obviously will have an option if you want to use this or not.

Thirded! I would gladly spend points or cash for a security token on each site.

Re: Petition for dual factor authentication: security tokens

I'd spend $20 on this just for the certainty. Even if it's a .1% chance, I'd still gladly pay $20 for the 100% certainty, and I don't even play high stakes.
