IN SOME WAYS, THE INTERNET IS A REAL HEADACHE.
WE'VE ALL DEALT WITH THESE ISSUES:
Trying to remember dozens of passwords. Filling out personal information form over and over again. Typing in long website addresses. And that's just the painful stuff.
What about the REAL risks of storing your personal and financial information "on the cloud?" Is that really where you want keep this information? That's kind of dangerous.
With Qkey, you can start to take back control of your own privacy and security on the web. That's why we're introducing Qkey.
WHAT IS QKEY?
Qkey opens a rich new internet experience—it's smart, simple, secure--and accepted virtually anywhere online.
SMART: Qkey eliminates the need for you to remember all your passwords and login access to all your secure web accounts.
SIMPLE: Qkey provides a rich, uniform online experience anywhere you go. Simply insert the Qkey, enter a single password, shop like you always do, choose a card from the digital wallet, then tap the Qkey to pay.
SECURE: Qkey uses three levels of security to secure online payments: A Smart Chip—the same chip used on the new payment cards, military grade encryption, and a physical touch sensor.
VIRTUALLY ANYWHERE: Qkey is compatible with most all existing websites, with a single access logon to instantly log you into all your password-protected web accounts. And like your keys and cards, when not in use, they are off the grid and in your pocket.
HOW DOES QKEY WORK?
Qkey is a secure computer in your pocket. It uses a security chip, military grade encryption, and multi-factor authentication to secure your online payments and access to your online accounts. There is nothing like this today.
And it's in a form factor that we are all used to carrying--who doesn't carry keys?
Qkey is designed to stop hacks and allow you to carry your personal information with you rather than store it in the cloud--which is, when you think about it, just someone else's computer...
QKEY IN ACTION
WHO IS QKEY DESIGNED FOR?
Do you shop online? Do you have password-secured accounts online such as banking and shopping site accounts? ANYONE who shops online or has set up account passwords is an ideal candidate for Qkey. So whether you are 18 or 81 years old, Qkey is for YOU.
IS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE ONLINE?
If you watch the news, you've seen story after story of cloud system breaches. Yahoo with 500 million accounts hacked. eBay with 145 million breaches. JP Morgan Chase 83 million. The list goes on and on.
So in other words, the answer is NO.
When our accounts are hacked, we feel violated. It's like someone has walked into our home and made themselves comfortable without our permission. Qkey is a simple solution to keeping our personal data off the cloud and in our pockets, away from hackers.
