“The gold standard for two-factor authentication”
Find the right YubiKey
The authentication challenge
Breaches, phishing & billions of stolen
The internet was designed for sharing information, not security. As it has advanced and scaled to be a critical part of our everyday lives—so have the fraudsters. Today, 18 million login credentials are being compromised every day.
Passwords are growing in number and complexity
When we are forced to remember multiple, complex passwords, we inevitably forget them. Or we cut corners on security by simplifying them or using them over and over again.
Mobile authenticators do not stop phishing
To step up security we have been told to use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) such as mobile authenticators and text message (SMS). Only to find out that they are slow and do not prevent modern phishing attacks from hijacking your logins.

The old way vs. the new way
The YubiKey makes securing cryptocurrency exchanges, accounts, and high-value transactions safe and easy. The YubiKey is the strongest way to protect logins, trades, and transfers at the exchange level, increasing user trust and accelerating cryptocurrency adoption.
The old way
There are many solutions out there, none of them ideal:
- Hosted wallets are at risk if the exchange doesn’t support strong authentication
- Desktop wallets are accessible online and can be phished without strong protection
- Cold wallets are difficult to use and manage, and require keeping the cryptocurrency offline
- Paper wallets are not safe, since can easily be destroyed or misplaced
The new way
The YubiKey is the smart way to protect cryptocurrency:
- Secures the currency at exchange level
- One security key can be used to protect many cryptocurrencies ー there is no limitation as long as the key is supported by the exchange
- Inconspicuous, small form factor that doesn’t draw attention
- Simplicity of use that advances cryptocurrency adoption
- Coins stay protected at the exchange level, while the secrets stay in the key
- Zero recorded account takeovers
