I know the XIV key is made by Vasco, and it's the same brand that makes the paypal key. I've had my paypal key for 3ish years I think, but I only use it maybe 203 times a month. I use the XIV one pretty much every other day, how long do these things last. If the battery dies, does it remember the algorithm it's supposed to be on or do I have to do stuff to reset it?
I'm hoping it's all things on the user end (like my car, the battery goes dead and you do a series of key on/off press button 5 times...) and not having to contact SE.
This may be covered on Lodestone or SE's site, and if so I appologize for seeming lazy, but I couldn't find anything regarding SE and the key nor PayPal and their key.
So, lifespan = ?
and What is the proccess required when replacing a battery?
Thanks for any info (I'm guessing it should be a few years before any of us need it, but it never hurts to ask and have an answer google-able)
