Facebook Adds Security Key Support

On January 26, 2017, Facebook announced support for U2F Security Keys:

Starting today, you can register a physical security key to your account so that the next time you log in after enabling login approvals, you’ll simply tap a small hardware device that goes in the USB drive of your computer. Security keys can be purchased through companies like Yubico, and the keys support the open Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) standard hosted by the FIDO Alliance.

Two-factor authentication can protect you against phishing scams, but U2F Security Keys hardens this protection.
