Securely log in to macOS with the YubiKey, a powerful security key, by using the native smart card (PIV) mode. These methods help better create the ideal ecosystem for a password-less future.

For Developers

Most common development platforms are available or easy to install on macOS, enabling developers to build for a range of platforms on one machine. The YubiKey protects these projects and more with secure PIV-compatible logon.

For Enterprise

Enterprises with macOS deployments can effectively reduce IT operational costs with easy to deploy YubiKey two-factor authentication. The YubiKey does not require a battery or additional hardware such as smart card readers, reducing cost.

For Individual

The YubiKey as a smart card, combined with a PIN, can be used as a secure alternative to logging in with a password. Additionally, macOS can be configured to require smart card for login.
