Google Chrome: Make Your Data Even More Secure With A $5.99 FIDO U2F Security KeyUSB is the only requirement.

If you are one of those individuals that are really sensitive about their data then here is a pretty awesome solution from Google.

Starting with Google Chrome 38, users will be able to identify themselves with a FIDO U2F Security Key (available for $5.99 or $17.99, whichever you prefer (products taken from Google’s help page)), and it works on all the platforms: Windows, Mac OS, Linux and ChromeOS, no drivers required.

As a result, it will ensure that you won’t be able to verify your logins on a fake Google site and protect your data.

Google Chrome 38 is the first web browser to support the Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) protocol and we can’t wait to see if other vendors will follow.
