After a pompous launch last July, Google announced today that it will replace Titan security keys due to a vulnerability the company discovered in the keys’ Bluetooth pairing process.

Google said the security flaw allows attackers to take over users’ devices and/or log into users’ accounts, although the keys should be safe to use under certain conditions.

All users who own Titan security keys that can pair (connect) with a device via Bluetooth are now eligible for a free replacement.

Titan security keys without Bluetooth capabilities are not affected, such as those that work via NFC or USB.

Owners of Bluetooth-capable Titan keys can access this page to see if their device is vulnerable, where they’ll receive instructions on how to apply and receive a replacement.
