Signing up with the swekey pluged in If you’ve downloaded the Swekey plugin and plan on using it for users to login here is what you might see.

The first image here shows what a user might see if and when you’ve got “allow registers” and said user has a Swekey plugged into there computer while registering to your site. I registered on a test blog I use, once I typed in my user name and email this pop up is what I saw. I checked ok, and another message stated that my swekey was now attached to my profile.

Users profile with Swekey When I went to my profile I saw the Authentication section, where I could check or uncheck to use my Swekey that’s attached to my profile. Essentially with this enabled, I’ll I would have to do to login to the administration panel was have the usb with me, and at any public computer can pop it in and type in the address with out remembering my user name or password.

Pulling out the swekey will logged in So.. I did a little test and this is what I saw. While logged into the admin panel, I pulled the usb key out and in a few seconds the page sent me to a “attempting to log out” page, and was unable to access the site until I put the swekey back in.

      I believe it’s about $10.
