Security for your passwords

Creating and remembering secure passwords may be a thing of the past thanks to a new award-winning invention displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

A world first in password security, the myIDKey Shield is a biometric portable firewall/proxy and VPN device delivering unprecedented security. The information stored on your myIDKey Shield can only be accessed by the person whose fingerprint has been programed into the device. To view the stored information, the user need only swipe their finger over the scanner on the myIDkey Shield.  

The myIDKey Shield can store encrypted passwords, PIN numbers, documents, private information, images and many more items. The myIDKey Shield also comes with a voice search function for those who have numerous passwords and files stored on the device.

Priced at the expensive end of the market for password security, a myIDKey Shield will set you back $249, but considering the trouble that can be caused by losing such private and personal information, the price may be justified.
