As time progresses, more and more those plain old passwords we were used to are being ditched for more secure options. Multi-Factor Authentication is a good example, but there are other solid options reaching the market nowadays.

One of the latest interesting products in this industry is Everykey, a military-grade security Bluetooth device that can replace all keys and passwords. Developed by a Cleveland-based company, this device can unlock laptops, tablets, house and car doors, and several other devices.

More about Everykey

Putting it simply, Everykey unlocks these devices/objects when the user is near them, locking them again as soon as the user walks away. In addition, Everykey can generate secure passwords for other web accounts, also allowing for automatic logins when the user visits the respective website or platform.

Due to the nature of the device, Everykey obviously has a way to protect the user if the device is stolen or lost: by using the Everykey App or by directly calling the company, it is possible to freeze the device, making it impossible for anyone else to use it. This action is not irreversible though, and the Everykey device can be reactivated should the user find it.

Everykey has recently launched a new version of this device, with several newly added features that include secure password sharing, password import, password management from the Everykey app, Everykey Vault 2 (that includes four layers of AES and RSA encryption), increased stability and speed, improved UI, and more.

This device is compatible with most popular operating systems (OS X, iOS, Android, Windows, and Linux), as well as the most popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Safari). Everykey can also be used with two different accessories, that make it even more practical:

  • Band accessory, a wearable band that strongly resembles a smartwatch;
  • Key ring accessory, a small dongle that can be added to a keychain ring without making it bulky.

Everykey can be purchased from the official website, so be sure to give it a look and see how such a small device can have a big impact on your life.
