Security Keys

For extra peace of mind and security

How it works

A security key is a USB device that uses a type of multi-factor authentication called Universal 2nd Factor (U2F). This allows the user to complete the login process simply by inserting the USB device and pressing a button on it.

There’s no need to type in an authorisation code or a password; just insert and tap.

Supported Products and Services

U2F support is already baked into a number of security products including LastPass, Dashlane and Keepass password managers. It’s also supported across a variety of operating systems, browsers and digital workspaces, such and ChromeOS, iOS, Firefox, and Google Workspace.

U2F-equipped security keys simply provide the added layer of protection you need.

Two steps are harder than one

A security key acts as an additional buffer between the user and attempted phishing attacks – by requiring both the physical key and an action by the user, attackers are unable to steal user credentials and use them remotely.

While any second factor will greatly improve the security of your account, security keys provide the strongest account protection available today.

What is phishing?

Phishing is when an attacker tries to trick you into giving them your credentials. This is a common threat to all online users.
