Who is the Qkey designed for?
Seventy-three percent of Americans have been victims of cybercrime and its only getting worse. We all need to take back control of our online privacy but until now the options have been inconvenient or costly. Qkey makes online shopping easier, more intuitive and secure – and I meet people every day that tell me they will buy a Qkey the minute it launches just so they don’t have remember passwords anymore.
Why do I need a Qkey?
Online shopping is not secure and it’s full of frustrations with too many passwords to remember and forms to fill out. The Qkey secures online transactions and eliminates the need to key in passwords, urls or shipping information. With the Qkey – one master password unlocks a secure and hassle-free online shopping experience.
Where can I use it?
You can use the Qkey to shop securely at any online retailer. The key is compatible with Windows 8.1 and 10.
What is Qkey?
The Qkey is a radically simple new way to shop online and secure personal information. The Qkey unlocks a seamless, intuitive online shopping experience while securing payment data using the new Chip payment card technology. Just like inserting a credit or debit card into a store terminal, users simply insert the Qkey into any computer’s USB port for secured online transactions. The Qkey provides multiple security layers and a private shopping browser that eliminates the need to key in information that is vulnerable to hacking.
Do I have to reload all my data if I forget my password? Lose my key?
The Qkey stores an encrypted back-up file on your home computer.
What happens if I forget my password?
The Qkey customer support team can help identify you as the owner and provide reset instructions.
Where is my data stored?
The Qkey stores all your data on the key itself with an encrypted back-up file on your home computer.
What happens if I lose my Qkey?
Without your Master password…the Qkey is useless. And just like your ATM card – after a few failed password attempts the Qkey locks down– and only you can reset it.
How does the Qkey make me more secure?
The Qkey reduces system vulnerabilities with a multi-factor, layered approach to security- making online transactions very secure as well as radically simple. The layers include:
- Individual authentication – one verified individual shopping on one Qkey – moves beyond a user created alias – creates a framework for trusted online transactions
- One master password –unlocks a secure browser and there’s no longer a need to key in passwords, web addresses or your credit card number
- Chip encryption – already proven to increase security worldwide
- Physical captcha – verify your presence by tapping the key
- Physical separation of the key from the network – when you’re done shopping you simply lock your browser and remove the key from the network
The chip contains encrypted information to increase data security when making transactions. Just as chip cards will increase your security at retail stores, the Qkey will make online transactions much more secure.
What does it mean to have a dedicated browser? Does this change how I shop online?
Your dedicated Qkey browser is designed to secure your experience any time you’re shopping. You can continue to browse the Internet, read emails, share pictures – anything else you do online just like you do today. When you’re ready to buy – simply enter your Qkey and make payments in a secured environment.
How does the Qkey work?
The Qkey is radically simple to use. Just like inserting a credit or debit card into a store terminal, users simply insert the Qkey into any computer’s USB port for secure online transactions. The Qkey uses the same chip technology created by Visa and MasterCard to secure retail transactions and it enables PIN entry through your mobile device. Users simply load their payment cards and shipping information onto their payment key and Qkey provides peace of mind when shopping online.
