What new iPhone app highlights the security flaw of physical keys?

Answer: KeyMe

by News Staff / July 28, 2014

KeyMe allows users to photograph a house key and then reproduce the key at a kiosk (there are five in New York City) or receive a copy by mail.

While the app may be convenient for some, it also presents a new risk for those who use valet parking or otherwise let their keys out of sight for more than a few seconds, as shown by Wired Writer Andy Greenberg, who secretly copied his neighbor’s apartment key and wrote about it.
