We all rely on the internet. Everyone wants their identity, accounts, and data to be safe. Unfortunately, traditional login just isn’t secure enough in today’s world — malware and other attacks steal passwords every day. Luckily, there is an easy and inexpensive way to protect yourself: two-factor authentication using YubiKey.
What is a YubiKey?
A YubiKey is a small device that you register with a service or site that supports two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication means that each time you log in, the service will request proof that you have your YubiKey in addition to your regular username and password. Phishing, malware, and other attack methods don’t work because they would need both your physical key and your passwords to breach your accounts.
Two-factor authentication with a YubiKey makes your login secure and keeps your information private. The YubiKey requires nothing more than a simple tap or touch. There are no drivers or special software needed. You can use your YubiKey on multiple computers and mobile devices, and one key supports any number of your accounts. YubiKeys are nearly indestructible — just add it to your keychain along with your house and car keys.
YubiKey is trusted by millions of users and 100,000 customers — individuals, small businesses, governments, and enterprises.
Stronger, faster, more economical
