You will need to have me,

If you wish to come inside.

For this place is Very exclusive,

With you my secret must reside.

But if you manage to get me,

Access will be yours.

You may now enter the building,

And unlock any doors.

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ I did not voted close / downvote but would like to let you know the reason. If you look at it, there are too many answers that fit, e.g. a key, access card, password (from answer), fingerprint unlock, security, anyone lives / works in the building, etc etc. You can improve your riddle by narrowing the possible answers. $\endgroup$ – Alex Feb 17 '17 at 18:01

Perhaps you're a

Password

You will need to have me,
If you wish to come inside.

Use a password to log in

For this place is Very exclusive,

Only users with passwords can get in. Also, one user has one password. Account specific information is very exclusive indeed.

With you my secret must reside.

Don't publicize your password.

But if you manage to get me,
Access will be yours.
You may now enter the building,
And unlock any doors.

Again, you can log in with a password. Building and doors are metaphorical here.

I guess you're

A Key

You will need to have me, If you wish to come inside.

Use a key to unlock a door and enter somewhere

For this place is Very exclusive

Each key opens a specific door

With you my secret must reside

You must keep it with yourself

But if you manage to get me
Access will be yours.
You may now enter the building,
And unlock any doors.

Literally unlock any doors

  • $\begingroup$ I had originally though this, but your descriptions to "very exclusive" and "unlock any doors" are contradictory. $\endgroup$ – Matt Feb 16 '17 at 18:30
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, it makes sense $\endgroup$ – G. Knoxx Feb 16 '17 at 18:31

I think you are

an access card

You will need to have me,
If you wish to come inside.

Can't gain entry without an access card

For this place is Very exclusive,

Only people with an access card can enter.

With you my secret must reside.

Don't share your access card with anyone!

But if you manage to get me,
Access will be yours.
You may now enter the building,
And unlock any doors.

The access card will gain you access to the building and the other doors in the building.
