NEW PRODUCT – FIDO U2F Security Key – U2F USB Two Step Authentication Security


It’s never been more important to add two-factor authentication to your online accounts. Two-factor adds another layer of protection in case your password is stolen or hacked, by relying on a physical thing you own. Normally this is done with a cell phone, where you get an SMS or phone call. But maybe you’re tired of hauling out your phone every time you log in to your GMail or GitHub account? That’s where physical USB tokens can make your life way easier. These work seamlessly on Chrome or Opera web-browsers, with no drivers or special plugins. Just press the button to log in, no waiting around for an SMS!

The FIDO U2F Token from Key-ID is a compact USB security token that adds a strong second factor to user logins for the growing number of online services that support this new technology. Compatible with Windows, MacOS and Linux, this security key is designed to work straight out of the box and enjoys native support in Chrome and other FIDO-compliant browsers and add-ons. Online service providers that support FIDO U2F as part of their two-step verification include Google, Dropbox, and GitHub.

The Key-ID FIDO U2F token supports any number of accounts registered within one key, eliminating the need to maintain and manage multiple devices. Offering secure smartcard-like authentication at the simple press of a button, this FIDO token allows users to combine their own passwords with the high level of hardware-based protection it provides.

Supplied with a key ring loop attachment, the Key-ID FIDO U2F token does not require dedicated drivers or software, performing all account and key management tasks automatically according to the FIDO Alliance standards.

For Firefox users, it seems there is a plug-in available here (we haven’t tried it!)
