Think about the day when you will not have to carry any key to open your doors and remembering those difficult passwords to log into websites will not be required. The situation looks very exciting but all of us know that making the world locks free and websites without passwords is just not possible.
Bringing a simple solution for this difficult problem, a US-based device making company is going to bring out a wristband that will allow you exclusive access to all your doors, device and websites without having to keeping the physical keys or remembering the different passwords.
Everykey LLC is developing a Bluetooth wristband called Everykey which will allow its user immediate access to his/her electronic devices like smartphone, computers and tablets.
The moment Everykey wrist band comes in proximity of the device it sends out an encrypted Bluetooth Low Energy signal to the device. The device, in return, decrypts that signal and disables its security mechanism. This happens only if the signal is verified correctly. Once the Everykey is taken out of range of the device, The device will re-enable its security mechanisms.
Everykey wristband works with all the major websites. The company developed the Everykey browser extension by testing it on hundreds of websites and the software was able to work with every website it was tested on. All major websites (Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, etc) work with Everykey.
However, it is not guaranteed that the software will work with all the websites. In case you want it to work with a particular website, you can contact the Everykey team and they will fix it up for you.
As far as compatible operating systems and internet browsers are concerned, Everykey works Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks), Windows 8.1 and Android 4.4 (KitKat). Development on jailbroken versions of iOS as well as Ubuntu 14+ (Linux) is underway. Everykey is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.
Everykey is not only about technology and access control. Its makers also kept its fashion aspect in mind while developing it. The wristband is made of a flexible silicon and light metal skeleton. It comes in different colours that can suit almost all kind of personalities. The wearable is water resistant so you can wear it all day long without the fear of spoiling it.
In case you lose your Everykey wristband, you don’t have to panic as you can just call Everykey team to disable it just like you do in case of losing your credit card. Or you can go to their website and disable it by yourself.
