Information managed by IDs and passwords includes but is not limited to personal contacts, photos, addresses, bank accounts and credit cards. This is the reason, once the account is breached, there is a high possibility that it will cause serious problems. Consequently, the need for “two-step authentication” is increasing in order to further strengthen the authentication system. Titan Security Key works on Fido Alliance which means Fast Identity Online and universal 2nd factor. An example of two-step verification is sending a passcode to a smartphone or other device, but has the disadvantage of requiring two devices. It is as easy and safe as a two-step authentication system, Google has released in the United States in 2018, a physical key "Titan security key".
The package includes:
It includes manual, USB Titan security key, Bluetooth security key, Micro-USB cable for Bluetooth security key, USB Type-C conversion adapter.
The USB Titan security key gets started and authenticated just by inserting it into the USB port and touching it with your finger, so it seems that you can easily go ahead with two-step authentication, meanwhile, the connection is a USB Type-A connector and the included conversion adapter. Since USB Type-A is converted to USB Type-C, those who use terminals without USB Type-A and Type-C ports need a different conversion adapter.
On the contrary, the Bluetooth Titan security key needs to be charged when the battery runs out, but it can be connected wirelessly, so if you can use Bluetooth, you can use any environment. Use the one that suits your style of use.
