Google's updated Titan Security Key can store up to 250 passwords


Google today updated  its suite of Titan security keys with some features that will make them work better with passkeys and passwords. 
Google has been trying for years to make it easier for people to secure their accounts, and the company is one of many companies pushing to move to passkeys from passwords, and has also sold physical keys to open accounts that support FIDO standards, according to the engadget report.  
As before, Google offers two Titan keys, one with a USB-C port and the other with a USB-A port, and both keys still support NFC technology so that they can be used to open accounts on compatible smartphones as well as through the physical port, and the new key supports FIDO2 specifications for login. Passwordless and can store up to 250 passkeys.
Google is using this as an opportunity to push people toward using passkeys to protect their Google Account as part of the setup process, and you'll be encouraged to create a passkey and store it on your Titan Key instead of continuing to use your own password. 
At this point, you'll also set up a PIN that can be used with your security key to unlock your Google account, but the Titan Key can work with any supported account, not just Google. 
And of course, you can use it as a two-factor authentication device alongside traditional passwords as well.
