Dont use this if you have to restart your iphone or close applications!
I am on a iphone 4, and thought this would be a excellant application to use to secure my paypal account. I was horribly wrong! You see, on my iphone 4 I tend to close applications through the multitasking menu in order to preserve battery life. So naturally after I set up this app to work with paypal I closed it, double tapped my home button, press and held on the icon, and closed the application. Well when I went to log into my paypal account about a hour later I find that I am unable to get in. What had happend was that when I closed the application it reset my Credental ID code! So I ended up having to digg out my other information and deactivate this service on paypal. After this I decided to run a few tests, and I have discovered that force closing the application is not the only way to get this horrible bug. Simply restarting your iphone causes the CID to change! So if you use this service then you better hope that your phone doesnt run out of battery, because as soon as it does then you will have to deactivate it like I did! I can understand that security is a high priority, but this is just is to much of a hassle to put up with. You can at least have it remember your CID between application closes, I dont see how this could be any more or less "comprimising" as having a official keythob!

Easy to setup, easy to use
Installed this app on my iPod Touch after hearing about it on a SecurityNow! podcast. It was easy to setup with PayPal. There was no confusion and no support required. I have both my iPod Touch VIP Access and my Paypal security key configured at the same time and can use either.

Great App!
I use this for eBay and PayPal and it adds a nice extra security layer. Beats carrying a dongle on my keychain since I always have my phone. Customer service is also top notch, I had an issue when I upgraded to the iPhone 4 and they had it fixed the next day and notified me of the fix via email. Between this and LastPass I don't worry anymore. 

Awesome security freebie
This helps secure your account against social engineering hacks and phishing scams. When I upgraded to iOS 4 I forgot to temporarily detach this app from my online account and I panicked thinking I was now locked out. Fortunately, the full restore following the upgrade did not reset my serial number like I thought it would, and access to my account went unimpeded.
