Two-factor authentication (2FA) is also called two-step verification (2SV). It adds an extra security layer to your account that gives you, and only you, access to prove your identity.
Millions of people use YubiKeys for 2FA because they are easiest to use, super safe and affordable. Plug in your YubiKey and tap it to sign in to your computers(for Linux and MacOS)*, networks, and online services. Save one to your keychain with the key to your house / car and a second YubiKey in a safe place as a backup.
*Coming soon to Windows (expected beginning of 2020)
