Just one year after it was launched in the United States, the binary authentication Google Titan security key has now arrived at online stores in Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom and France, which is a good opportunity for users working with sensitive data in these countries.

According to the Verge, the Google Titan security key is a physical security solution that allows dual device based authentication to standard FIDO, allowing users to log on to a number of applications and browsers using the key to verify that it is already owned by the user, rather than relying on a relatively weak password. The key can connect to the device that requires authentication in three ways – across USB, NFC or Bluetooth.

The key was initially designed for internal use by Google and was actively operated within the company for more than a year, before being made available to customers outside the company in July.

An official spokesman said that it depends on how quickly keys are available in more areas, However, Google refused to determine the quality of the Titan Security Key which was sold in the United States.

Google recommended unlocking the key Bluetooth and asked to replace it, the company warned you that if you use the pairing feature Bluetooth for the security key, you must make sure that you are in a special location where a potential attacker can not reach a distance of 30 feet.

Security keys are generally an effective way to prevent account hijacking, but Google’s latest release provides examples of how hackers continue to find ways to hack around them.

Christian Brand, product manager Google Cloud said in the company’s publication on this error: “It is safer to use the affected key instead of having no key at all, because the security keys are the strongest protection against the deception that is currently present.”
