TypingDNA launches Chrome extension for PC-based 2FA
TypingDNA has launched an extension for the Chrome browser to provide a convenient alternative to using a mobile device for two-factor authentication.
The TypingDNA Authenticator Chrome extension enables developers to significantly reduce the login time for applications while ensuring that their cloud hosting, VPNs, and other services remain secure, according to the announcement.
The solution also speeds up cryptocurrency wallet transactions significantly, as it replaces the need to switch between devices to complete the 2FA process for exchanges such as Coinbase. The same benefit can also be applied to any of the thousands of Chrome user services which utilize two-step authentication. The new extension also features the capability to grab 2FA QR codes and auto-fill verification codes, and private key vault functionality.
“At TypingDNA, we believe that stronger authentication should be seamless and everywhere, that’s why we want to allow the end users to have this technology free of charge,” saysRaul Popa, CEO TypingDNA. “On the other side our technology is available through an API for deep integration in online applications.”
Recent developments in AI have greatly improved the accuracy of keystroke authentication algorithms, the company says.
TypingDNA expanded its portfolio in December with the launch of authentication technology that identifies individuals based on short, repetitive text samples.
