Login without username and password! If the authenticator is registered and connected, the ChimeraTool software will allow you to login 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 where 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?
Register the authenticator on the first use:
When you get your authenticator, connect it to the PC, and start ChimeraTool. On the login window, the 'Login with Authenticator' should become enabled. Click on it!
