Intel Security announced their newest integration for the True Key application today to work with Windows Hello. More specifically, Windows 10 users can use the True Key extension for Microsoft Edge to keep all of their accounts safer.
The True Key application by Intel is a singular sign in to protect passwords across their account. The app also fills in log in credentials automatically and can work across multiple browsers seamlessly. True Key can lock all of this information behind unique identifiers such as facial recognition, fingerprints, or any other multi-factor authentication methods.
This is the start of a 'password-free future' according to Richard Reiner, CTO of True Key. As he explained in the press statement:
“The password problem won’t disappear overnight, which is why working with Windows Hello is a big step in the shared vision between Intel Security and Microsoft of a password-free future. By providing True Key app users with enhanced multi-factor protection and support for dynamic web form-filling – we continue to build an application that will encourage better password management and online security.”
Alongside the announcement True Key also got an update with improved authentication methods and can now support mobile browsers. Here's what else they've added:
- Additional Desktop Browser Support: In addition to supporting Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Chrome, the True Key app now supports the Firefox web browser for a seamless and more secure desktop browsing experience.
- Advanced Login Preferences for Mobile Devices: Android and iOS users can now combine up to three different authentication factors to log in to their True Key app account. Users can select from factors such as their face, fingerprint, trusted device or a master password to log in to their True Key application.
- Enhanced Android Features and Browser Support: Android users can now log in to the True Key app using their fingerprint as an authentication method, untrust a lost or unused PC or mobile device, and use the native Android browser or Opera browser to surf the web safely and securely.
While users can only store fifteen credential pairings for free, the premium $20 yearly subscription will give you unlimited use.
