True Key by Intel Security adopts Windows Hello
Posted on 7-Dec-2016 20:36 | Tags Filed under: News



Intel Security announced the new integration of the True Key extension with Windows Hello to deliver a seamless multi-factor sign in experience on Microsoft Edge. Now, Windows 10 customers can enable the new True Key app extension integrated with Windows Hello on Microsoft Edge to enjoy an easier and safer way to unlock their online accounts.

 

By providing built-in multi-factor protection, the True Key app allows users to increase their online security by retiring their bad password habits, and start creating long, strong, and complicated passwords for all their online accounts.

 

With this integration, Windows 10 users can download the True Key Microsoft Edge extension, connect their True Key app profile and enjoy Windows Hello secure authentication factors. The True Key extension will remember a user’s existing passwords and create new ones, as well as automatically fill in their username and password when logging in to websites or apps.

 

“The password problem won’t disappear overnight, which is why working with Windows Hello is a big step in the shared vision between Intel Security and Microsoft of a password-free future,” said Richard Reiner, CTO True Key by Intel Security. “By providing True Key app users with enhanced multi-factor protection and support for dynamic web form-filling – we continue to build an application that will encourage better password management and online security.”

 

To enjoy this secure and seamless sign-in experience users can download the True Key extension for Microsoft Edge from Windows Store, then go to security preferences and enable Windows Hello authentication.

 

Other key features and enhancements to the True Key app include:

 

  • Additional Desktop Browser Support: In addition to supporting Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Chrome, the True Key app now supports the Firefox web browser for a seamless and more secure desktop browsing experience.
  • Advanced Login Preferences for Mobile Devices: Android and iOS users can now combine up to three different authentication factors to log in to their True Key app account. Users can select from factors such as their face, fingerprint, trusted device or a master password to log in to their True Key application.
  • Enhanced Android Features and Browser Support: Android users can now log in to the True Key app using their fingerprint as an authentication method, untrust a lost or unused PC or mobile device, and use the native Android browser or Opera browser to surf the web safely and securely.
