Google to Distribute 100,000 Titan Security Keys to High-Risk Users
Google is distributing 100,000 free Titan Security Keys to high-risk individuals, including those involved in elections. These keys serve as a second layer of security after passwords are entered and can store passkeys for various accounts. Google plans to distribute these keys to governments worldwide by 2024. The initiative aims to protect individuals like activists and journalists from online attacks. Google is working with non-profit organizations to implement this program. The company believes that eliminating passwords and using passkeys with FIDO2 technology is a safer way to sign into accounts. Two-factor authentication is seen as a significant step to protect online accounts. The distribution of secure tools like these keys is crucial for individuals who face high-risk situations.
