Why use Chimera Authenticator?
It has two useful functions:
- Log in without username and password
If the authenticator is registered and connected, the ChimeraTool software will allow you to log in using the authenticator instead of typing-in the username and password. This protects you from key-loggers and you don't have to store or remember your password for ChimeraTool usage.
- Carry your license with you!
Until now, your licenses were attached to your PC. You could use the ChimeraTool software on that PC only.
Now, you can attach licenses to your PC or a Chimera Authenticator. You can use a license attached to your authenticator on any PC as long as you log in with the authenticator, not your username/password.
How to use the Authenticator?
