Alex explains how Krypton, their open source browser extension and mobile app, can turn the phone sitting in your pocket into a phishing resistant two factor authentication (2FA) security key.

Show Notes

Alex shares the story of how Krypton first started as a secure messaging app, then evolved to help developers manage SSH keys, and today aims to make phishing resistant two factor authentication a realistic option for average internet users.

We get Alex’s thoughts on Google’s recent focus on allowing Android phones to be used as security keys, what happens if you lose your phone, and different approaches to account recovery.

What is The All Things Auth Podcast?

Every 2 weeks, Conor Gilsenan hosts a conversation with creators, researchers, founders, and advocates who are working to improve the usability of security and privacy technologies.

Guests share what they are currently working on, how they got to where they are today, who they are trying to help, and what keeps them motivated to overcome challenges along the way.
