are a few different types, so be sure to choose any key that supports
the Fido U2F specification (which are universal 2-factor online security
standards). Security keys typically cost between $18 and $50, and can
be purchased online or through a trusted tech retailer.
first time you use your security key at vanguard.com, you'll need to
register the key so we can recognize it (and you) in the future. Once
it's registered, log on to your account with your username and password
as you normally do. When prompted, insert your security key into a USB
port on your computer. You'll then need to touch the key physically.
This lets us know you're a human and not a remote hacker.
if you use a security key, you'll still want to register for security
codes in case you ever need to log on when you don't have the key in
your possession, or log on from an unrecognized device.
security keys and security codes provide for 2-factor (or multifactor)
identification, which makes it more difficult for unauthorized users to
gain access to your accounts.
