What you need to know​

  • Google has introduced two new Titan Security Keys during the Aspen Cyber Summit.
  • These new Security Keys are offered with either USB-C or USB-A and still provide NFC and fingerprint authentication.
  • What makes these different is that they can now be used to "store more than 250 unique passkeys."

Over the past couple of years, we've seen companies like Google, Apple, and Microsoft introduce new and different ways to keep our accounts secure. Since 2018, Google has offered different versions of its Titan Security Keys, and now there are new versions on the way.

From the outside, there's not much that's different from the previous Security Keys, as there is still a USB-C and USB-A option. Instead, Google is now making it possible to store and protect your various passkeys with these dongles. Announced during the Aspen Cyber Summit, Google states that these Security Keys can be used to store "more than 250 unique passkeys."
