Public Beta Launch

Jul 1, 2013 By Geoff

Let the countdown to the end of passwords begin. After two months of testing with our private beta testers, LaunchKey has officially moved from private beta to public beta as of 2pm PDT today. All pending developer apps have been activated and we welcome new developers to begin beta testing LaunchKey within their own projects. Additionally, we've updated the iOS and Android mobile apps with our latest authentication factor, geofencing, available for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play. If you were beta testing with a previous version of the app, please manually remove the app and install the latest version.

While beta testing, please take note of any bugs, errors or other unexpected behavior you experience with the LaunchKey API or mobile apps and report them to If you're a security researcher, we invite you to take part in our white hat bug bounty program and responsibly disclose any vulnerabilities you find.

This beta launch is just the beginning: In the coming days and weeks, we'll be releasing more SDKs in JavaScript, Ruby, iOS and others as well as WordPress and Drupal plugins, support for OpenID, and updates to our product and services based on your feedback. We'll also be announcing some new features and partnerships along the way.

The road to a password-free world is a long and winding one, but it's an inevitability we all must pursue. Fortunately, with the beta release of LaunchKey today, that road is now paved and the keys are in your hands.
