This authentication device makes it easier for users to access secure accounts without having to remember complex passwords

Those looking for a simple, secure way to access personal or business accounts without having to remember complex passwords may want to try using YubiKey, a hardware authentication device developed by Yubico. The device makes getting into an account simple for every owner by having them plug the device into their computer’s USB port when a platform asks them for two-factor authentication. The YubiKey creates a unique password using a hexadecimal alphabet every time it’s used, making it difficult for a hacker to gain access to personal information. The developers also made a YubiKey for smartphones.

Yubico has a list of platforms that functions with its devices listed on its website. The standard YubiKey for a USB-A port costs $40 to $50, and models that work with USB-C ports cost $50 to $60.
