Constant unplugging and re-plugging security keys into USB ports for each login is cumbersome. The situation is further exacerbated when users have to repeatedly login over short time intervals. For example, deskless workers or staff in shared PC environments who do not sit behind a desk to perform their job are experiencing too much hassle and struggling to maintain productivity.
In such case, contactless security keys are designed to provide convenience and ease of use. This takes the hassle out of manual labour, but the problem of security key loss and damage remains unsolved. And there exist complaints from both employees and employers about recurring costs of security key purchase, distribution, delivery, and replacement.
IDmelon enables these users to turn what they already have, i.e. their smartphones, into a FIDO2 security key and enjoy contactless authentication. Therefore, they no longer have to carry a security key around and worry about not forgetting to take it to work, leaving it behind, or losing it. Instead, they can focus on what they do best. In case, they are no willing or allowed to use their smartphones to work, IDmelon Fob lets them enjoy tap-n-go experience .
