3. Titan Security Key
A year after arriving solely in the US, Google’s Titan two-factor authorization security key has now landed in Google’s online stores in Canada, Japan, the UK, and France. If you are working with sensitive data in one of those countries, it might be worth considering.
Google’s Titan two-factor authorization security key is “a physical security solution that enables hardware-based two-factor authentication for the FIDO standard: letting you log into a number of apps and browsers using the key to verify that it’s actually you.” As the production level for this piece is low, the key is $50 in the United States; abroad:$65 CAD in Canada,￥6000 (about $56) in Japan, and €55 in France and £50 in the UK.
