FIDO U2F – Protecting Online Accounts
Are you concerned about losing account information by password theft, phishing, hacking, or keylogging scams? Now there is less to worry about.
The FIDO U2F Security Key by Yubico is a specially designed YubiKey, relying on high-security, public-key cryptography to provide strong authentication. Usernames and passwords are no longer enough to protect access to online accounts. The FIDO U2F Security Key is designed to insert it into any USB port, and works with any website that supports the FIDO U2F protocol, including Facebook, Google’s Gmail, Google Cloud and G Suite, GitHub, Dropbox, and Dashlane. And all it takes is a simple touch of a button!
How it works – 2 simple steps to authentication
- Enter your usual username and password in the login field of any app that supports FIDO U2F.
- Insert your Security Key in a USB port with the gold side up.
- Simply touch the gold button on the Security Key to generate your secure login credentials.
