Secure login made open and easy 🔒

#3 Product of the DayOctober 07, 2018

Solo is a FIDO2 security key you can use to securely login to websites. It's an open source alternative to Google Titan.

It works with PCs and mobile phones via NFC.

It supports signed firmware updates, so we can soon add new features like OpenPGP, one time passwords, static passwords, and cryptocurrency wallet features.

    Open source. Awesome LED...easy to use.


    It doesn't ship until December

    I had the opportunity to play with a prototype key a few weeks ago. Initially, the case was two pieces and glad to see that they went with a silicone sleeve design. I think the LED emitting through the logo is pretty's well to some of my other students here at Rutgers! No problem using with Google or Facebook.

    Haden Patrick has used this product for one month.

@stanimir_mihov1 It works on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. Safari is working on adding support. Opera I think, but I haven't tried haha.

Hey team, Love the product. I have one question, what will happen if I loss my Solokey? Because I usually loss my pen-drive in 1 month

@johnyvino27 The browsers/apps where you're logged in will remain logged in until you explicitly log out. You'll have to use one of these to enable another second factor -- you can buy another key, or you can just switch to another method such as an authenticator app. Note that the other methods won't protect you against phishing, while security keys do. Pro tip: you can put your security key in your keychain. :)
