I have moved from 2FA to MFA. I use Bitwarden (open source) across all my devices along with Authy for MFA and Authenticator for my Microsoft accounts. 


Having a Yubikey would be awesome! Having to autofill, open Authy and find the right account takes time so Yubikey would speed things up heaps!

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Have multiple different MFA , Google, Microsoft along with Steam and Battlenet for gaming. Having something like this would minimize the amount of time and effort required to keep on top of them all :)

Definitely use 2FA, with a mix of push notifications, TOTP and text/email codes. Moving to using a Yubikey has been on my to do list, just hasn't been the right time to purchase.

Use a bunch of 2FA with personal and work, mainly Authy but a bit of GA and MSA and Duo to get server access from work. mix a bit of PWM and 2FA together.

I currently use Aegis on my phone for 2-factor on every service I'm able to. It allows me to backup the keys off site as well.

Have an old USB-A Yubikey would be very useful to have a USB-C one which would work with my more modern devices without an adapter!

I must admit, I'm very slack when it comes to 2FA/MFA. I have it enabled on my most important accounts but I'm sure I could use it a lot more. Even where I am using it its often just SMS verification which I know is not the best.


A Yubikey NFC would be awesome and it will give me the poke in the ribs I need to get my stuff together.

I only use 2FA with banking, I should use it more I know but...

 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I have a basic understanding of 2FA.


In the past I've had to use Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and Authy.


I dont find them particularly convenient so my 2FA footprint is pretty tiny.


Presumably the little blue key aims to resolve that, but what happens when you lose it?


Edit to add: but if I did win one, I would be colour coordinated at least! 😃

Delete cookies?! Are you insane?!

Yay! For someone like me with 200+ 2FA entries across multiple systems, this would make life a lot easier. Would be really great to have one of these & simplify my life.

Authy, by far the least awful of the 2FA apps.



And that's not just snark, in a usability evaluation last year Authy was the only 2FA app that received a non-negative rating.

Currently use Authy (Google Authenticator) and some Totp via KeePassium and keepass.

Haven’t figured out how a yubi key would work. But keen to figure it out.
