YubiKey 5 Improves Security of Your Online Accounts


A 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) is often required to ensure online account safety. But it might be bothersome having to open a 2FA app to get a one-time code to sign in to an online account. And that’s why YubiKey 5 was made. It essentially speedruns the login process by allowing 2FA with a tap of a button.

YubiKey is connected to a computer and every time you are required to use 2FA, you only need to give a gentle tap to the key to authenticate the account. It works on nearly all services with 2FA enabled, including Google, Microsoft Facebook, and FIDO-supported websites. It can even be paired with password manager services like 1Password, LastPass, Dashlane, and more.
