What is the YubiKey?

The YubiKey is a physical, hardware multifactor authentication device that changes passwords every time it is used. Made by Yubico, the YubiKey multifactor authentication adds security by requiring an extra login step before you are given access to something. When used with LastPass, you would login with your LastPass account email address and master password, then enter the YubiKey code when prompted, and gain access to your LastPass vault.

Once enabled with the LastPass account, the YubiKey is inserted into a USB port, the button on the YubiKey is pressed, and the device emits a One Time Password (OTP) to complete a login.

LastPass recommends the YubiKey because it is easy to use, significantly increases security, and is a cost-effective multifactor authentication option to implement for both individuals and businesses.
