    For more than a decade, Yubico has helped millions of people and thousands of businesses put an end to account takeovers, and we believe that it is our social responsibility to put our products in the hands of people that need it most.

    Secure it Forward by Yubico

    Our Secure it Forward program was established to provide security keys to help those most at-risk improve their authentication posture. For every 20 keys sold on the Yubico e-commerce store, we donate 1 key to journalists, humanitarian workers, nonprofits or organizations in need. We are proud to support:

    • Journalists and humanitarian workers
    • Non-profit organizations that protect journalists, freelancers, and writers from doxing and other targeted attacks in an effort to uphold transparent, fair, and ethical reporting.
    • Human rights organizations and activist groups focused on ending racism, sexism, LGBTQ+ violence, domestic abuse, and other social justice issues around the world.
    • Bi-partisan networks that fight to preserve democratic integrity by securing political campaigns, political candidates, and election processes.
    • Organizations working to further diversity in tech and security, including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programs, hackathons, and diversity-driven events.

    Some of the Voices we support with security

    “Eliminating fear among journalists who might be worried about facing online retaliation and who don’t necessarily have the resources to think about their digital security — especially under duress — is really important. A physical token like the YubiKey takes away a lot of the guesswork and really just gets the job done in terms of being secure online.”
    Harlo HolmesDirector of Newsroom Digital Security, Freedom of the Press Foundation
    “YubiKeys represent a foundational and critical building block of any cybersecurity effort. Protecting credentials is step one for every campaign in the country and Yubico addresses that issue directly and comprehensively. DDC is thrilled to have Yubico as one of it’s partners.”
    Michael KaiserPresident and CEO of DDC
    “YubiKeys are our preferred hardware security keys for high-risk and high-profile Microsoft AccountGuard customers, due to the product’s advanced levels of security, usability, and unique multi-protocol support that allows it to work across an entire enterprise.”
