[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?

I wonder why the coupon isn't appearing for me. I'm logged in, tried different browser, even mobile data, still no coupon appears.

Coupon not showing up for me at all in my account unfortunately. It's probably for the best as it would just be another backup key that I don't technically need. I wish the 5Ci would come to a similar price point

Would you go with the Google Titan Security Key USB-C vs the YubiKey 5C? they are both same price right now. $52 Titan vs $51 Yubi after coupon.
PS I already have a couple Titan USB 2 but USB-C is where we're going.

Thanks.

Thanks OP, unfortunately the coupon is not showing for me both when not logged and when logged in. I also tried from browser and from the Amazon app - no difference. It looks YMMV.
