For anyone who really thinks this way, let me give you a 30,000ft view of why this is wrong:

Which of the following passwords is easiest to memorize?

1. "SlickDeals2020"
2. "4 God So Loved The World"
3. "3!dFi&m_udhUfhhaAEJ75jf@HbzOpm37lauma_25381047361"

You've probably answered #1 or #2. Security professionals (hackers by another name) have tools that generate passwords. Without getting into the details, it would be beyond trivial to crack password #1. Password #2 would take longer, but since it is a passage in a popular book, the time it would take to crack it is reduced. Either one should take less than 1 day to compromise. (The first should take less than 10 minutes)

Password #3 is sufficiently random and has a very long length. It would take even the best known supercomputers *years* to crack that password. That makes it the best password of the 3, but obviously the most difficult to memorize.

That's what a passsword manager like LastPass, 1Password, Keychain with a YubiKey is for. You can generate wildly complex pass phrases that make accessing your data out of reach for most would-be hackers and secure all of that data with a physical hardware device that stays in your possession.

Yes, I hear you: "I haven't done anything wrong; the govt isn't cracking my passwords;I don't care if they get into my acct" and so on. Cool, I get it. Do you. Just know that using your spouse's name and 4 digits makes you the low-hanging fruit for somebody learning how to hack, let alone someone who is competent at their job.
In this case it's not the size that matters, but the technology behind it.
10% ca$hb@ck as well at a popular site. Saves about $9.50 on a 2-pack of NFC USB-C models. You can message me if you can't find it and want the exact name.

Note that you should always buy a minimum of 2, because if you ever lose a key you don't want to be locked out of your accounts. (should always have 2 associated).

The NFC one cannot be used with Lastpass, correct? Need to get the 5 series instead?

How do they justify charging the high prices that they do? Seems exorbitantly expensive for a little key

Not much of a discount on 5 NFC two pack. Got them for the same price at Amazon earlier this year.

Ya, I wish the discount was better. These things are pricey just for authentication.

Try with a different browser. I had to disable pi-hole, adblock and then it worked on Google Chrome.

Do any banks support Yubikey? Brokerage houses? I'd like to protect my finances with a hardware based authenticator, but it seems there's no support out there.

You.could use Lastpass to generate very complex passwords and secure your Lastpass with a pair of yubikeys. Works great for me.
