Online identities are becoming more and more entwined with our daily lives, and to strengthen the security of these accounts you can opt in for Two Factor Authentication to make sure you are who you say you are. Two Factor Authentication is typically a combination of two pieces of information that work together to give you access to an account online, and this USB Security Key is exactly that.

Normally you would get a unique code SMS'd to your mobile phone number, that you then use to verify your identity. But having to get your phone out every time you want to log into your Google account is a mega-pain. That's where physical USB tokens can save the day. Essentially you just press the button on the USB dongle when prompted, no waiting around, no worrying about having phone battery, or your phone on you. These devices work seamlessly on Chrome or Opera web-browsers too, no drivers or special plug-ins are required.

Just press the button to log in, no waiting around for an SMS!

The FIDO U2F Token from Key-ID is a USB push button cryptographic token that adds a strong second factor to user logins for a growing number of online services. As the Key-ID FIDO U2F Key is compatible with Windows, MacOS and Linux any user can take full advantage of the added security. It is designed to work straight out of the box too 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, GitHub, Facebook and plenty of others.

The Key-ID FIDO U2F token supports any number of accounts registered within one key, eliminating the need to maintain and manage multiple devices/authenticators/applications. USB security tokens offer 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.

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Mark verified purchaser

    I actually received 2nd Generation of the FIDO U2F USB Security Key, which is much smaller than the 1st Gen one pictured. When inserted into USB port only a total of 10mm protrudes (and that includes a 2mm protruding button which lights up (green - I think - but I'm colour blind, so don't hold me to it). I haven't set up any 2 factor authentication yet but plan on doing so shortly.

    The ordering experience from Core Electronics was excellent - the order was received in Sydney 4 days after ordering. (Posted on 26/07/2018)

  2. Review by IRFAN verified purchaser

    Does not work with Firefox as yet, only Chrome. (Posted on 9/02/2018)

  3. Review by Ross verified purchaser

    compact, good, does the job well (Posted on 27/12/2017)

  4. Review by Ken verified purchaser

    I was surprised on how easy the device was able to be set to work and how easy it is to use on a day to day basis (Posted on 7/06/2017)

  5. Review by Christopher verified purchaser

    Solid, attractive, easy to use and very simple to set up. It's not compatible with every account I have but it's catching on. Facebook and Google took 5 minutes to set up. 2 factor authentication is basically mandatory these days and it's great to know that I can access my accounts on a public computer if I lose my phone.
