Since working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to further secure my home working essentials. I’ve been researching a personal solution for 2FA into my Windows login.
Yubico offers universal Two-Factor authentication keys starting at $45 for individuals. These keys will work with services like Windows login, Google Accounts, Microsoft accounts, Dashlane, Keeper, Github, Dropbox, Facebook, Twitter, and LastPass. There are more inexpensive options, but the Yubico 5 Series keys carry the best value.
