YubiKey with LastPass

LastPass may guard the keys to your Kingdoms, but who guards the password vault that holds those keys?

The answer is Yubico’s YubiKey. Integrated with LastPass, the application’s login page is updated with a third field used to provide a second-factor authentication powered by YubiKey.

Once the username and password is entered, the user clicks in the YubiKey field and touches the YubiKey, which enters a One-Time Passcode.

YubiKey fits into the USB port of any computer and works with any operating systems. The device looks like a keyboard to the computer, so no drivers or software need be installed.

LastPass recommends the YubiKey because it is easy to use, significantly increases security, and is a cost-effective multifactor authentication option to implement for both individuals and businesses.

Core features:

  • Works on all major browsers and operating systems, as well as NFC-enabled mobile devices
  • Works instantly, no need to re-type pass codes from a device
  • Minimized form factor; 3 mm thin, 3 g light
