This provides superior protection to text-message verification.

Smooth operation
Security keys make 2-step verification easy. Simply tap the button on your key instead of retyping codes.

No phone required
Unlike other 2-step verification methods that use one-time codes via text message, security keys don’t require a phone number on your account.
