Dropbox added support for Universal Serial Bus (USB) key authentication. The recent feature can be utilized as part of a two-step verification - user will insert the Universal Serial Bus (USB) key after typing their password instead of entering digits.

The feature requires a FIDO Universal 2nd Factor-compatible Universal Serial Bus (USB) key, which can also work with other U2F authentication accounts, including from Google. Currently, the recent login security feature is only available through a Chrome web browser.

Universal Serial Bus (USB) key login will surely appeal to those who are worried about using their account credentials in a phishing attack. Users who lose their U2F key will still be able to access their account via an authenticator app or a text message.
