It just became easier to use Cardinal Key in Firefox on your Mac. The April 7 release of Firefox version 75 includes full support for Cardinal Keys, which eliminates several setup steps with prior versions of the browser. For the updated instructions, visit Install a Cardinal Key on a Mac.

Simpler and safer logins

A Cardinal Key reduces or eliminates the need to use your SUNet ID and password for web-based logins and eliminates the need to use your username, password, and two-step authentication for VPN connections.

With a Cardinal Key, you skip the Stanford Login page entirely, only needing to respond to the occasional two-step prompt. With passwordless logins, Cardinal Key also helps protect you against phishing, which is the single greatest threat to your privacy and cybersecurity today.
