Level up your security with Yubikey

Passwords alone are no longer enough, and two-factor authentication (2FA) is essential. But why settle for codes sent via text or email that are susceptible to phishing? Enter the YubiKey, a hardware security key offering unparalleled protection.

I use a Yubikey for my online protection, and they have Bluetooth versions and a key that fits both Android and iPhone devices!

Why Choose a YubiKey?

  • The biggest reason I see is that in order to sign into an account of yours you need to physically possess this key and also know the password. And with this being one of the most difficult situations for a hacker to deal with since they do not physically possess the key.
  • Unmatched Security: YubiKeys store your authentication credentials on a secure chip, eliminating the risk of online theft. Unlike codes sent over SMS or email, they are immune to phishing attacks.
  • Universal Compatibility: Works seamlessly with hundreds of popular services, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and more. Don’t just think about social media here, but also think about your banking, stocks, any type of website that offers compatibility with Yubikey.
  • Convenience: Simply plug the YubiKey into your device and tap a button to login – no need to fumble with codes or apps. And again Yubikey has a single key that has a lightning connector on one side and then a USB-C connector on the other side.
  • Durability: Built to last, YubiKeys are water-resistant and crush-resistant, making them perfect for everyday use.
  • Always remember when you’re going to buy a key like this, you need to buy two of them and configure both and leave one of the keys in a secure locked area such as a safe.

Where to Buy a YubiKey?
YubiKeys can be purchased directly from the Yubico website, as well as from major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg.


Prices vary depending on the model and features, but typically range from around $20 to $70. And don’t forget to buy two keys.
