I purchased two FIDO2 keys to secure my Proton account. However, Proton only allows us to use a security key if we have previously activated a 2FA TOTP. I can now log with my TOTP or with my security key. So, what are the advantages of the security key over the TOTP?
Thanks for your help!

2fa account can fido2 key keys log privacy proton security security key thanks totp
