NordPass introduces signing in a with a security key

LONDON, June 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NordPass users can now use a new multi-factor authentication method when logging in to their accounts — a physical security key. This new login method is available for all Nord Security products: NordVPN, NordPass, and NordLocker.

Why use a security key as an MFA method?

There are multiple ways to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA). One of the most common methods is temporary numerical codes the user receives via text or email or have generated by a dedicated app, like Google Authenticator. However, there are a few benefits to a physical MFA:

  • It’s more secure. Security keys use asymmetric cryptography to authenticate the login details. With such a security method, the only way hackers could break into an account is by having physical access to the key.
  • It’s not tied to the user's identity and doesn’t leave a digital footprint.
  • It’s easy to use. Security keys are ubiquitous and recognized by more and more platforms.

What security keys does NordPass support?

Nord Account supports U2F security keys certified by FIDO. These include the Security Key series, Yubikey 5 series, iePass FIDO K44, MultiPass FIDO K25, ePass FIDO NFC K9 and K35, BioPass FIDO K26 and K27, as well as others.
