What you need to know

  • Google is giving away free Titan Security Keys to select Google One subscribers.
  • You must live in the U.S. and are subscribed to a Premium tier of Google One.
  • Eligible subscribers can choose either the USB-C or USB-A Security Keys.

In a world filled with hacks and password leaks, it’s more important than ever to keep your accounts as secure as possible. There are some steps like you can take, such as using a password manager, but the best way to keep your account safe is to enable two-factor authentication where possible. And Google has introduced a new promotion for select Google One subscribers to help make things easier.

Late in 2021, Google introduced its latest Titan Security Key, which actually consists of two different versions. There’s a USB-C model that plugs right into any USB-C port on your device and features a fingerprint scanner for authentication. The other relies on USB-A and also includes a fingerprint scanner, giving you a bit more flexibility with devices that don’t have a USB-C port.
