Q2: Why do I need a YubiKey when I have two-factor authentication (2FA) already?
Last Updated 2 years ago

While 2FA such as passwords and codes help to keep your online accounts secure, they can still be compromised by phishing and other attacks. Using a YubiKey offers a layer of physical security, as the device will be on your person. It has a one-tap log in function using your fingerprint to authenticate your log ins. Research done by Google and other universities indicate that security keys like YubiKey have a high rate of account takeover prevention.
