Vanguard supports Yubikey.

Quote from NogginBoink :
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.

Quote from itsarectangle :
How do they justify charging the high prices that they do? Seems exorbitantly expensive for a little key
I picked up my keys years ago when they had a sale for 50% off and then the Wired promotion, of which I'm still hoping will some day come back. I think I paid about $50 for four keys. They are expensive and I'd never buy full price, but Yubico really lead the advancement of security keys and are the best out there for a reason. The price is high because they're innovative, have robust software, very high security, and durable as hell. Everything you want when access to your accounts require them.

I don't regret purchasing them at all. As soon as a deal comes around for a mini one, I'm all on it.

Can confirm. I've had my keys for nearly a decade and its saved me countless hours and headaches with password and securing accounts. I have nearly 500 online accounts of all types. Lastpass and Yubikey makes it trivial to manage, plus I can use insanely complex passwords that will never be guessed or bruteforced. Yes, hackers can use other means to get into accounts, but that's outside of end user control.

You'd assume banks would be are the forefront of account security, but they're a laughing joke compared to most sites. The only site I'm aware of that uses security keys is Vanguard, but they require a backup SMS option which negates the entire purpose of security keys. The most important use of the keys for me is the advance protection program from Google, since all my online accounts are tied to my email. The second would be the OTP codes I use my keys for, since it's no longer tied to my phone.

Quote from quemsera :
The NFC one cannot be used with Lastpass, correct? Need to get the 5 series instead?
I'm almost certain NFC yubikeys can be used with Lastpass on mobile devices with NFC capability. My keys are NFC-capable but im using them on PC with Lastpass.

10% ca$hb@ck as well at a popular site. Saves about $9.50 on a 2-pack of NFC USB-C models.

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).
So... a couple needs 4 keys, potentially? For backup?

You shouldn't need four unless you're super-paranoid. Keep one in a safe deposit box, and when you lose one or it fails, buy another one right away.

That's no protection against malware or man-in-the-middle attacks that intercept your password while you're entering it.

So 3 total is a good number for a couple? One for each person to use and a backup on a safe? I remember a B2G1 promo they had some time ago. I hesitated and missed it. Effectively $45 off 3.

That's where MFA comes into place isn't it?

Correct. Technique matters not the size

Given that not many sites support it and then they have a backup to SMS anyways, I haven't been able to justify the usage. Plus I find it difficult to use with iPhone. I do have one, but never used it other then testing and setting it up.

How do people use them. For example just for email?

FIDO authentication is resistant to MitM attacks.
