Seeing as this ships from the states, any idea if we will be charged tax/duty on this? I'm not overly familiar with the rules. Ordered 2x 5 NFS models which comes to 45USD + 10USD shipping.

I have no idea. I'm quite new to security keys and I just use Bitwarden premium + 1x Feitian ePass K9 + 1x Yubikey 5 NFC. On my local device, I only have to re-enter my master password (greater than 24 characters long so I think it's enough) on my local devices, with the security keys only being required on new devices.

Do you know what two factor authentication is? You have probably seen it in various forms, like when you sign in and it prompts you from another device to accept the login (I know Samsung and Apple does this by default), or when you try signing in to somewhere and it texts you back a code.

This YubiKey is the same thing, except it comes in a hardware form. So as long as you have this yubikey connected, you can use it as that second form of authentication, to prevent access to your accounts / services without that key. Not everything accepts YubiKey or other hardware based ones.

Personally, I am using the Kenningston Mark II Fingerprint reader, which works with Windows Hello. I like the simplicity of signing in with the fingerprint, and my USB sits in a very easy to reach but visibly discrete place.

The yubikeys support more and newer standards. But if all you're doing is securing your Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc accounts, the titan is just fine.

Titan supports FIDO but yubikeys support FIDO2

But for this price, you might as well just get the yubikey if you don't already have either of them.

And it's always recommended to have two keys; one as a backup

This could be subject to change, but the Google Titan works with FIDO standard and webauth, so if you only plan to use it for online accounts, there is virtually no difference.

The Yubikey supports other technologies, like SSH, Git etc.

At the current price, of 50% off, you can nearly get 2 for the price of one Google Titan.

I would think no. The package says made in Sweden/USA. So I don't think there will be duty. As for taxes, probably not since the price is fairly "low".

I have two Yubikey 5's. Besides using it as a plug in 2FA, you can use it to store OTP codes if the service you use doesn't support it as a security key. So instead of using your phone for OTP, you can have it on these keys. You just need to download the Yubico Authenticator. This way I have my OTP codes on two keys. Going to buy two USB c ones, I only have the regular USB ones.

Been using yukibeys for a few years now, and would recommend. Wish adoption of physical authentication keys was more widespread, but for the services that do support them they're so easy to use. Also I have one of mine on a keychain that gets jostled around quite a bit and after two years it has some wear and tear on the outside but still works flawlessly.

Anything over 12 characters, that contains a mixture of complex characters is more than sufficient. There is some movement towards using passphrases, so long sentences rather than caring as much about complexity. So to each their own. Everyone should be taking their security seriously, so it's good to see these devices being more widely adopted.

Just remember you need to be on BitWarden Premium to be able to use hardware keys.
