I'm getting this message if my ring comes within reading range after I unlock the screen. It is clearly reading the "private" NFC tag because it shows the contents of the private tag. This will be a problem given the new ring's extended range. Moto X running Marshmallow.

RE: "New tag collected" on Nexus 5
TLDR; Yes, in the future but if you want to see it sooner then grab a ring with NTAG203 and that will help us raise the funds we need to produce an NTAG216 powered ring! [url:1ahfxsqa]http://nfcring.com[/url:1ahfxsqa][/quote:1ahfxsqa]
Excellent, thanks for the heads up. College student, so I can't afford to bankroll much of anything right now : )
Have you looked into the U2F standard closely? The old Yubikeys are not going to be backwards compatible, so it might not be a simple matter of having a single secure storage location. You wouldn't want to miss the boat on the next big standard!
After doing some reading about the NFC chip in the NFC ring, It's clear that the security required to use this ring to store private keys is just not there.
Could someone comment on future plans for the ring? The xNT is using the shiny new NTAG216, any idea on when the next hardware refresh will be and whether it will include a more advanced chip?
I'm particularly keen on future proofing for [url=https://fidoalliance.org/specifications:2e2oo14g]FIDO compatibility[/url:2e2oo14g], particularly the U2F standard.

I really want to use an NFC ring to provide OTP for my laptop. I bought Yubico Nano, which fits into the USB slot of my laptop with only a tiny nub sticking out:
This only reduced my security, however, as it's easy to accidentally trigger it and it's very difficult to remove. However, the form factor is perfect. I've seen Bluetooth and Wifi adapters this small, but the smallest NFC readers I can find are the size of USB drive.
What gives? Can someone point me to one?
