I have the PayPal security key, which in addition to the normal
password, makes you supply a randomly generated integer. It's a
bit of extra hassle, but given the extra security it adds that is
okay. Recently, PayPal is now requiring a THIRD level of
authentication, after I enter the random key, I now have to supply
my full credit card number (or some other form of authentication).
Is there a way to turn this behavior off? It's getting just a
bit extreme I think to go to that level, and it's also fairly
pointless. If someone has installed a keyboard sniffer, thanks
to this innovative PayPal "feature" I'm now revealing my credit
card to the hacker, whereas with the older version of PayPal the
credit card could remain a complete secret.

security. They should yank this or give us some way to opt out of the
