QwicKey – Another USB Credit Card Swiper

By Andrew Liszewski

I’m not a fan of storing my credit card info with any of the online stores I frequent, though I can see the convenience of doing so. At this point I’ve just got my card number and other details memorized (expiration date etc.) but the QwicKey seems like a decent alternative for those who don’t trust their memory. It’s a USB card swiper that can be used to autofill credit card forms with just a swipe of your card. Convenient! But it also comes with custom software and it’s own security card that can be used to store and protect everything from login and password info to personal data for automatically filling out other types of contact forms and even bookmarked sites.

The card reader itself sells for just $49.95 but that includes a 1-year subscription to the company’s online service which gives you secure access to all of your data no matter what computer you’re using. After that the yearly fee is $29.95 plus another $29.95 for any additional users/profiles you want to add. And you were worried about some hacker robbing you.

    It might seem like a lit, but I gotta tell ya, when my credit card number was access online – the loss of TIME and expense WAY outweighed this. This encrypts your data and guards your data. And LifeLock and IronKey charge a lot more and don't do as much.

    I think I will wait awhile to see how secure the system is before getting one, it sounds very useful and I expect there will be more uses and reasons to have one in the near future anyway such as credit card consolidation purposes.
