I thought this might be helpful information for anyone who uses Paypal or Ebay which is most of us.

I recently had an illegal payment done from my Paypal account. It is still unknown how they did it but after talking to Paypal, they sent me a "security key".

This "key" is about the size of a lipstick and when you activate it, only the person with the key is able to log onto Ebay and Paypal along with your password. You can put it on your key chain or leave it next to the computer. It normally is $5 but its a great tool if you are worried about security of either site.

If anyone has additional questions, let me know.

I've had mine for about 3 years now. You can associate it with your Ebay account too.

Works fairly well unless you use any 3rd party utilities that try to save your password and login for you.
