Ensuring that all of your online accounts are secure has become increasingly urgent as time goes on. But remembering the various, complex passwords that you may be using can be a pain. Other password managers exist, but are still reliant on a master password. Hideez Key hopes to simplify this by providing a small accessory which handles cybersecurity for you.
The Key is based on a thin, water-resistant keychain fob with both Bluetooth and RFID. While it has many of the features of other security managers such as securely storing passwords, and generating strong passwords. It can also autofill your signature onto documents and transactions. Other security features include protecting against someone walking off with your device, as well as allowing you to lock and unlock your gadgets based on your proximity. There’s also a multi-functional button which supports a number of features from authenticating yourself to sending your current location to a friend. The Key accomplishes this by connecting to a companion computer and smartphone app, which also allows you to tweak the Key’s settings. It is currently available for purchase over on Hideez’s site for $49 and is shipping now.
Your Hideez Key comes ready to use, with the CR2032 battery installed inside. Hideez Key uses RXP proximity profile of Bluetooth™ 4.0 Low Energy communication protocol to determine when you are near your personal electronics device, secure it when you are out of the range and offer you a ton of other useful features that make your digital security convenient and joyful.
