Our mission is making secure login easy and available for everyone
The authentication challenge
Balancing security and usability has always been a challenge. Software authentication, including passwords, sms and mobile apps are all increasingly vulnerable to malware and hackers. And the more secure hardware authentication solutions are difficult to use and deploy. The YubiKey changes this.
Yubico was founded to set new global authentication standards, enabling one single security key to access computers, phones, networks and online services—all in a simple touch. We named our invention the YubiKey—your ubiquitous key.
To use the YubiKey, go to the Security Settings of a supported service and select two-factor authentication.
Insert YubiKey & tap
On a computer, insert the YubiKey into a USB-port and touch the YubiKey to verify you are human and not a remote hacker.
Tap on phone
For NFC-enabled Android phones, just tap a YubiKey NEO against the phone to complete authentication.
