Last August, Google has launched of the first two keys for Titan security, which can be used as a two-factor authentication method for some online services via USB-A, NFC, or Bluetooth. Now, Google says it is adding a new USB-C key for training, which will be available tomorrow from Google Store for $ 40.
The USB-C key works similarly to Google USB on ONE key and Bluetooth keys, all of which are built to the FIDO standard. A spokesman confirmed to The Tip the USB-C model does not have the NFC capability of its other two devices. This may not be a waste of time, though, as you may be able to directly connect the USB-C key to new phones and computers, without using a clunky USB adapter or relying on Bluetooth.
Google also has a USB-C key that is compatible with Android, Chrome OS, macOS, and Windows devices, according to the company. (The Bluetooth key only works with iOS and requires the Google Smart Lock app to be installed.) Like its previous keys, Google claims that the firmware-USB key of the firmware will remain with true tool light. , in order to increase the risk of physical assault.
Google claims it was paired with security maker Yubico’s key to build its new USB-C key, and it shows: it looks like Google Yubico te YubiKey 5C. The two keys are the same, but the Yubico keys support other protocols than Google’s Titan keys, such as WebAuthn, so this may be the best option for some, which includes you want.
Google is another two-tier Secure Titan that is only available as a $ 50 bundle, but Google says you can buy it individually from tomorrow. The USB-A / NFC key costs $ 25, and Bluetooth, and can be plugged in via Micro USB, costs $ 35.
