[Amazon.ca] Yubico Yubikey 5 NFC $45

$45 after $14 off coupon.

Looks like this may be available only to students since I have Prime Student.

Looks like the coupon is only visible if you are logged-in to your Amazon account.

Never really had a Yubikey. What are the usecases, is it needed? This is a good price though. Is it that much better than an authentication app?

think of this as a personal ID key. So when you log into your email from a new computer, instead of two-factor authenticating via a code sent to your phone as text, youd just plug/tap this key to prove its you.

It's a hardware token for 2-step veririfation for accounts that support it. Much more secure than sms, call, or one time passcodes, which are all phishable to varying degrees.

Mainly is for power-users like sysadmins who regularly need to access systems and tend to remain in one desktop.

Much more secure relative to SMS 2fa and phone timecode 2fa.

I don't see it. Is it because I already used a coupon for Anker charger? Or is that irrelevant?
