USB Key security:

  • USB Key cannot be duplicated. Logon profile is bound up with a USB flash drive serial number.
  • USB Key originality. By default USB Key is bound up with a computer where it was created for login. Another USB Key will be ignored by the program (even with a valid logon profile). Computer owner can forbid using any other USB Key except one for login.
  • Protected password. By default USB Key does not contain your Windows password in plain form, but only Encryption Key pair that is used to reconstruct password for login operation.
  • Two-factor authentication by using PIN code for USB Key. This is a small password with only 3 attempts to enter that is required when you login by USB Key.
