SOLID webKey Secures Multiple Passwords With ONE Master Password

It’s safe, convenient and portable.

SOLID webKey securely stores up to 2000 passwords in a convenient and portable ‘key’ that you can wear on your keyring, or keep in your purse or wallet. We provide a free password manager application for use with SOLID webKey, this allows you to easily change all your passwords to strong, extremely hard to guess passwords. All you need to remember is one master password that unlocks your SOLID webKey.

In addition to storing old-fashioned passwords, the SOLID webKey also supports the FIDO U2F standard. You can register the SOLID webKey on any number of websites. As long as the browser you use supports U2F and the website supports the U2F standard, you can use your SOLID webKey as a strong but convenient second-factor authentication device.

One Key With Two Major Features

    Use it as a U2F security key

    Note: U2F is currently only supported on Google Chrome and Opera browsers.
    • Plug the SOLID webKey it into your PC or laptop’s USB port.
    • No additional software required to use it as a U2F security key (provided you use a supported browser).
    • This works on most computers with a standard USB port.
    Use it as a password vault

    Note: webKey Password Manager is currently only supported on Windows Operating Systems.
    • Plug the SOLID webKey into your Windows PC or laptop’s USB port.
    • Download, install and run the webKey Password Manager application (SOLID KeePass).
    • Sign in by touching the golden button on the SOLID webKey and then typing in your master password.
    • You can now use the webKey Password Manager to add, edit, update and use database entries.
    • Each database entry contains items such as username, website location (URL) and notes (and of course a password).
    • The password is never stored on the PC, passwords are stored on the SOLID webKey, encrypted under your master password.
    • To use an entry in the database, for example, to sign on to an online account:
      • Open the web page or application
      • Select the entry in the database (Using the tray icon to open webKeyPassword Manager)
      • Use the 'Autotype' feature to emulate keys and type in your credentials or; 
      • Copy/paste the username/URL and password into the application or web browser.
    • To read or update your password or other associated credentials like the username, website location etc, you have to prove to the SOLID webKey that you are a real person by touching the gold button on the SOLID webKey – this unlocks a limited-time use of the password. This powerful feature prevents Trojan programs from reading all of your passwords while your SOLID webKey is plugged into the USB port.

How does SOLID webKey help 

Remembering many unique passwords is hard.


 

Write them down on paper  This is not a bad solution if you store the written down passwords securely in a safe or similar. If you leave your passwords lying around for everyone to see, it is not a great solution! SOLID webKey makes it easier and is more secure. 
Save all your passwords in a spreadsheet. This often used solution has a few problems.
  • If your laptop gets stolen, all of your passwords are available to the thief. 
  • Even password protected spreadsheets are relatively easy to crack. 
The webKey Password Manager encrypts each password with 256 bit AES key. It is incredibly difficult to decrypt your passwords from it, even if the physical key is stolen. 
Use password manager software This is a pretty good solution, at least you are setting the bar a lot higher.
There are a number of potential problems with password managers though:
  • Passwords are stored on disk and can be stolen for analysis.
  • Some password managers are open to attacks by Trojan programs.
  • If the password manager saves the passwords on the cloud, the system it is hosted on could get hacked or the network could leak passwords.
Use SOLID webKey and webKey Password Manager. Your passwords are now safely stored on a dedcated electronic key that you take with you. Trojan or malware programs can not read your passwords without human touch.
Use your browser to store your passwords Unless you enable the browser's password protection, this is generally not a good idea.
 See the FAQ for recommendations.
Choose one password for all the websites you use This is a terrible idea! In 2016 around 1.1 Billion passwords were compromised. On average users have around 100 websites where they have registered passwords. If one site is compromised and your (only) password is stolen, a hacker could access all of your accounts. Use SOLID webKey and webKey Password Manager. Change all your passwords to unique randomly generated ones. This gives you the best protection possible on stes that do not support U2F.

Phishing attacks

Use an OTP device for the second factor.

One Time Password (OTP) devices offer many advantages over simple passwords. OTP devices can, however, add to user frustration as users now have to type in a changing password to access the website

. They may, also offer a false sense of security: 
  • Most  rely on a shared key, this key can potentially be stolen from websites.
  • The OTP approach is still vulnerable to active phishing attacks.
 
Make sure you use unique, strong passwords generated by the webKey Password Manager and stored safely on SOLID webKey. Now also use the SOLID webKey as a U2F security key on sites that support it, for the ultimate in security!
Don't open suspect emails.
Verify URLs before visiting them. 
It's very important to remain vigilant at all times, however, even tech savvy users sometimes get fooled by a well-crafted phishing attack. In fact, a study has shown up to 43% success rate for well-crafted attacks.
