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 Android devices
  • Works instantly, no need to re-type pass codes from a device
  • Minimized form factor; 3 mm thin, 3 g light
  • Practically indestructible; waterproof, crush safe, no battery
  • Two slots for multiple configurations: OATH, Challenge-Response, etc.

Benefits of using YubiKey with LastPass:

  3. Which YubiKeys work with LastPass? Any YubiKey in any form factor (with the exception of the Security Key, which supports U2F only) can work with LastPass — including YubiKey 4, YubiKey 4 Nano, YubiKey NEO, YubiKey NEO-n, YubiKey Edge, YubiKey Edge-n, YubiKey Standard, and Yubikey Nano — as long as the YubiKey is configured with a Yubico OTP.  Yubico and LastPass also offer a discounted bundle with YubiKey + LastPass Premium.
  4. Does the YubiKey work with the LastPass Mobile Device Application? The LastPass Mobile Device Application supports YubiKey two-factor authentication using the YubiKey NEO on Android devices. The YubiKey does not work with the LastPass Mobile Device Application on the iPad/iPhone due to hardware limitations  on the Apple devices. For more information, see Introducing LastPass Mobile Support for the YubiKey NEO.
