The difference between them is grounding. The third prong provides grounding and in doing so, adds protection in three ways -- to the system, to whatever is plugged in, and to you. There’s nothing wrong with two-pronged plugs, they just can’t offer the same protection, and some appliances require the third prong because of the amount of power they use.
