Google launches security key Titan to secure authentications

Titan Security Key from Google will prevent attacks by using encryption and has been designed to offer a higher level of protection than two-factor authentication.

Titan Key, available in
Bluetooth/NFC as well as USB options, will cost around $20 to $25 individually. A bundle for both the versions will be available at around $50. CNET report says that Google had been testing an early version of its security key with over 85,000 employees and none of them got hacked since 2017. A final version of Titan Security Key is now available for users. The report quotes Google product manager for identity and security Christiaan Brand.

Titan Security Key will be available for sale through Google’s online store within the next few months. Google product page reads " 2-step verification with a security key uses cryptography to provide two-way verification: it makes sure you’re logging into the service you originally registered the security key with, and the service verifies that it’s the correct security key as well"
