    Mobile two-factor authentication through codes by SMS, like used in NL only by biggest bank ING, is inferior to a card reader which will issue a single-session code/password imo.
    A reader can still be insufficient against certain Mitb malware but not removing the weak aspect of socially engineered dumb smartphone users, is a bit stupid.
    Gsm phones were fine, call and sms only, virtually no risk. Current smartphones are way too smart for a certain user base.
