U2F keys provide several advantages to time-based tokens.

  • They do not have a battery (excluding Bluetooth based devices).
  • They never fall out of sync due to time drift.
  • The private key stored on the device cannot be extracted, so cloning would not be feasible.
    Therefore, It is recommended that you register more than one just in case.

We want U2F to be another security option for securing your wallet from hackers and KeyLoggers. U2F requires a hardware dongle (usually with a push button). The Menu option would require easy setup instructions for the most common U2F USB dongles. Installing any software or drivers as required.
