Two security keys for logging in safely online. Protect yourself from phishing and other attacks across Google, Facebook, and more.
We’re incredibly excited to announce Solo, the world's first open source security key that supports the newest FIDO2 standard for secure login!
Secure login is for people who want to be protected against phishing, account takeover, and other online attacks - basically for anyone who uses Google, Facebook, Dropbox, Twitter, Github... Let us guess: you're one of these people? Great, then Solo is for you, and will help you stay protected!
In making Solo, our biggest dilemma has been "how can we make secure login more personable and accessible to everyone?"The answer was astonishingly easy: colors! (Though we're still wondering why you can't choose your color when you buy other security keys.) We're going to add colored silicone cases to Solo, starting with black & white cases, and with your support we want to unlock more and more colors. Check back often for updates, and help us reach our stretch goals.
Stretch Goals.
If we raise enough funds, we can offer the following bonuses.
$5k - Black or white colors. Offer USB-C plug for +$3.
$50K - Five colors available: Black, White, Blue, Mint, Red.
$75K - Special Kickstarter color: to be defined (with you!)
$100K - Pack of all 6 colored cases: don't choose one color, get them all.
$150K - Free upgrade to USB-C plug for both Solo and Solo Tap
$200K - Hidden Surprise!

Your Solo

We're launching a complete line of products, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs. You can pick USB-A or USB-C for any model later on.
Solo and Solo Tap: two new open source devices for secure login.
Our new Solo security keys work seamlessly on many services, including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Github, and many more. Because Solo supports the new FIDO2 standard, you get thestrongest secure login, with protection against phishing, account takeover, and other online attacks. And it's incredibly easy to use and consistent across all sites: when you login, after username and password, you plug Solo in your computer and just press its button to get access.
Open source at their core, our keys are verified, trustworthy and hide no secrets. Well, except one: a master secret is safely stored and protected by the Solo secure processor, so that only you can log in, of course!
Solo and Solo Tap come with a colored, sleek (and grippy!) silicone case, that you can match with your style, and even change to fit your mood. Solo boasts a tactile button for physical feedback, multi-color LED light to indicate secure login, and most importantly no battery! So it's always available and ready.
Non-US backers, READ THIS!
We care a ton about your support, and to reciprocate we're making all our Getting Started guides open and translated in as many languages as we can, so even our friends & family who don't speak English can start using Solo and stay safe on the Internet.Check this out, translated aufDeutsch,Español,中文,Français, eItaliano, and if you'd like to help, just shoot as a message. For Europeans, we are going the extra mile by offering FREE SHIPPING to all backers in both the US and EU!If only shipping elsewhere were easier, sigh.
