Yubico and Lastpass

In 2016, 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged stolen and/or weak passwords. The most common way credentials are stolen is through phishing, and these attacks often take advantage of the prevalence of password reuse.

Turning on multi-factor authentication (MFA) and maintaining good password hygiene greatly strengthen account security. Together, LastPass and Yubico’s second factor technology eliminate password fatigue and protect online accounts at work and home from data breaches.

The YubiKey from Yubico simplifies the MFA experience for individuals and employees alike by providing an easy, secure way to access passwords stored in your LastPass Premium, Families, Teams or Enterprise account.

Yubico offers the following features to Lastpass users:

  • Compatibility – The YubiKey works seamlessly with LastPass Premium, Families, Teams or Enterprise on major browsers, such as Google Chrome and Firefox, across multiple platforms, including iOS and Android with the LastPass App.
  • Multi-protocol Flexibility – The YubiKey offers flexibility for LastPass users looking to deploy Yubico One Time Password to access their password vault, and the many services secured by LastPass—all in one key.
  • Robust Security Controls – With the LastPass Enterprise Admin Dashboard, IT administrators are able to provision accounts, see actionable security reports, enforce YubiKey MFA, and effectively manage password security enterprise-wide.

To get started using LastPass and the YubiKey, you need:

  • LastPass Premium, Families, Teams or LastPass Enterprise
  • Your YubiKey

If you have already purchased LastPass, you can simply purchase the YubiKey and enable it when it arrives.

Yubikey has many more applications for MFA, including Microsoft Office 365 applications, as described in the following article: https://www.yubico.com/solutions/office-365-mfa/
