Google recently announced that USB-C Titan Security Key will be available in more countries and regions. The security key was released last October and is currently only available in the U.S. for $40. Today, however, Google announced that it will open to Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Austria, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, bringing its total online sales to 10 countries.
Users in these countries can purchase through the Google Store. Google has also launched a smart USB-A/NFC and Bluetooth/USB/NFC Titan Security suite in Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.
Built on FIDO specifications, this USB security key is an internal firmware that Google engineers can protect all platform accounts that support the hardware. The key was originally designed for Google’s internal use and has been in use internally for eight months before being sold. The USB key needs to be plugged into the USB port of the computer to be authenticated, while the Bluetooth key is used for wireless authentication on mobile devices.
