Thinking about grabbing a yubico Neo for my home accounts (I work in a federal bulding with CAC smart card and Google 2step required for our work accounts)
Anyone out there have any experience with these? I am thinking of the Neo one because it has NFC and that can help with my android phone locking......maybe get a basic one to leave in the safe for last ditch account recovery.....

Thanks!

btw: if you have a github account yubico offers a 20% discount!

I've used Yubikeys in the past. It was a good system within its limitations (2014). If your apps and OS support it, give it a try.

If the above posts weren't by two moderators I would have thought this a bit suspicious.  Words I've never heard it seems.   But I am quite the Luddite.  Know Eye Deer of the meaning but appears to be something out of the IT world.  Well it is the forum for "geek speak" so I am out of place no doubt.  SHBKF
