Yubico's New Authentication Key is Super Tiny and Works with USB-C Ports
Yubico announced today that it's releasing a new authentication key for devices with USB-C ports. The YubiKey 4C Nano works just like any other YubiKey, and supplements the company's earlier USB-C key release, the YubiKey 4C. This new one is just tiny. Look at it next to that penny. Can authentication keys be cute? This one is cute.
YubiKeys are a replacement for text messages or the Google Authenticator app when using two-factor authentication. You stick the key in your PC's USB-C port, tap it, and the service will recognize the device as yours to let you log in. LastPass, Facebook, and Gmail allow users to verify their identity with YubiKey, among other services. You can also use it to secure Windows Hello, Microsoft’s biometric authentication feature. The 4C Nano is now available through Yubico's website for $60.
