In for two with the edu discount. You need to add two separate keys in order to get the edu discount as well when trying to purchase the 2-pack the discount code gets funky.

Quote from JONLIVE :
Best authenticator is your brain, keep it there, no hacks
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.

Quote from t4m :
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?
Sms is considerably less secure. It's way better than just password but less than a hardware key.

You are one of those who keeps the same pwd for all the sites, bit completed, but repeated and one site exposes your pwd, your are completely exposed and you will feel naked.

I thought SMS pin is secured, but I saw some one spoof the number and the pin to their phone. Not hard to do it either..

Whats this about not working with lastpass? Is there even a key that isn't a 5 at this point? does anyone know if USB-A to USB-C adapter would allow a USB-A key to be used in a USB-C laptop? or will it work through a dongle?

Yes... I use my Yubikey 5 NFC that way with my ipad and galaxy s9.

USB adapters are hit and miss. If the software will check for a dongle attached during the key request/authentication, it will work. In my experience good phones work fine, crap ones do not work - they never check if a key is attached to the usb port.

Totally agree, however many sites have max 20 characters limit for passwords.

This keeps it off your phone. Security wise its slightly better. Your phone can theoretically be hacked.
This hardware key is much harder to hack.
