Security Key

By hooking up a security key to your account, you will get 100 free SWTOR Cartel Coins every month.  Subscribers have a big advantage over free accounts when it comes to getting free SWTOR Cartel Coins. Subscribers can download the free swtor security key app from Google Play or the App Store. You can use this app as a security key, even if you unsubscribe later.

Free and Preferred status accounts have to use a physical security key. You can buy one through the Origin store (affiliate link). That technically makes them not free SWTOR Cartel Coins, but it will eventually pay for itself if you stick with the game long enough. My physical security key has made me over 1700 free SWTOR Cartel Coins.
