Add a Titan Security Key on a Linux system

To set up a Titan Security Key on a computer running a Linux-based operating system, you may need to add a new udev rule.

  1. Go to this directory: /etc/udev/rules.d.
  2. Create a new file for your Titan Security Key.
  3. Name your file (for example: "titan-key.rules").
  4. In the new file, paste the instructions for your udev version. Learn how to find your udev version.
    • Udev version 188 or higher:
      • KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", ATTRS{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTRS{idProduct}=="5026", TAG+="uaccess"
    • Udev version 187 or lower:
      • KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", ATTRS{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTRS{idProduct}=="5026", GROUP="plugdev", MODE="0660"
  5. Save your file.
  6. Restart your computer.
  7. Add a Titan Security Key to your Google Account.

Find your udev version

If you don’t know your udev version, you can check by running the command "sudo udevadm --version" in a terminal.
