Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the security key designed to help you logon safely online.
Pledges for the Solo security are now available via Kickstarter from just $14 or approximately £11 depending on your location. If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to start in a couple of months time during December 2018. The pledge price includes free shipping to the US and European Union.
“Our new Solo security keys work seamlessly on many services, including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Github, and many more. Because Solo supports the new FIDO2 standard, you get the strongest secure login, with protection against phishing, account takeover, and other online attacks. And it’s incredibly easy to use and consistent across all sites: when you login, after username and password, you plug Solo in your computer and just press its button to get access. Open source at their core, our keys are verified, trustworthy and hide no secrets. Well, except one: a master secret is safely stored and protected by the Solo secure processor, so that only you can log in, of course! ”
