Thiese USB or clickable dongles at $20 to $40 each seem a possible resource in a security patch up / fixup plan.

I'd be curious how they can be used beyond Win-Doze and Google cloud stuff, though that might be a good start for some 2nd auth processes.
I use mine for github on linux.

For instance, enabling them in a sandbox so keycaps don't get a sniff, then off to the consumer computers.
Are you referring to keyloggers? The devices are smart cards that hold a private key and sign a request. There aren't any keys to log. The more expensive ones can hold ssh and gpg keys.
