It’s an economical budget friendly device that encrypts your passwords and opens the logins automatically.  It makes impossible the identity thieves to steel your passwords.

Nobody can remember the dozens of passwords for the websites.  And it is not advisable to put the same password to all the login requirements especially in the current world where the hackers are more vigilant than the vigilance department. Imaging what happens when you realize that your e-mail, Facebook or even bank account login passwords had been stolen. Or what happens if you want to open a site very urgently and you forgot the password? To counter all those issues there is now a small blue tooth device the “Everykey”.Its a tiny device which will generate unbreakable passwords to your website accounts.

Actually what does “Everkey” do?

-         It automatically logs in or logs out when you are near and away respectively.
-         It automatically creates passwords that are impenetrable passwords for all password protected websites.
-         It uses military grade AES 128-bit encryption to protect those complex passwords, so that the thieves can’t enter.

So forget the passwords, forget the worries about hacking of your security pins or passwords. You don’t have to login and logout ever again.

-Everykey unlocks your phone, laptop, tablet, house door, car door, and other access-controlled devices when you are nearby, then locks them back down when you walk away.

-When you first login to a website, your Everykey remembers that login. The next time you visit that website, Everykey logs you in automatically.
If your Everykey is lost or stolen, you can freeze it through the Everykey App, or by calling the Everykey team. No one will be able to use your frozen Everykey, so you don't have to worry about unauthorized access of  your devices and accounts. You'll still be able to use your old keys and passwords until you find your Everykey and unfreeze it.

With the Everykey App, you can pair your Everykey to your devices, manage Everykey settings such as the range, and freeze your Everykey if it is lost or stolen. The Everykey App also pushes the latest over-the-air software updates to your Everykey so you can stay up to date on features and security standards.
