    So you have to wait three months plus to receive it? I think I'd rather pay £39 and get it tomorrow if I needed it.
    A what?

    It's basically a 2nd layer protection for your online accounts such as Gmail, Facebook, Dropbox, Github etc -- You need your password and this key in order to login to your account.
    Looks a good deal but ...
    How much are the international shipping fees?Can't find info about that on their website.

    Yubikey came out with a new version that supports a just standardised WebAuth and all are working to update support for this.
    I wonder if this free Yubikey is the new version?

    (Updated)
    I searched through Google what I read and found this link which DID NOT say anything about a new Yubikey. Hmm, may doublecheck again later.
    Here is the link.

    (Updated Again)
    Well folks, I did read correctly about a new Yubikey as yet unreleased.
    Here is link to article.

    Everything here for YubiKey 4 is outlined here, if anything that you are specifically looking for that is not listed there, then it's probably not the one Wired will provide.

    + Yubikey works on most common platform that have U2F enabled so its a really strong 2nd layer of protection & OTP which works just like the Google Authenticator (play.google.com/sto…_GB )

    Thanks for the chart. Thanks for posting. Good to be able to see how it can be of use.
    The Yubikey4 works off USB port and would take up a slot on laptop, unless it uses USBC or if on Android, a microusb port or lightning for Apple.

    Plugging in and out wears the port out.
    Also on Android mobiles, how does this work then unless, the nfc version of Yubikey is used with nfc enabled Android mobile.

    Sigh, there is also the issue of inheritance and next of kin how that works with these.
    Oops, deal is getting cold and could be my fault. I voted hot as buying a magazine essentially gives you free security key.
    Isnt this a good deal?
    Security is a polarising area but... not like this...

    I guess in that case as an alternative, the Google Authenticator would be a viable option for stepping up 2nd Factor Security as opposed to a physical key?

    This deal is good for those who like reading on Wired regularly and the novelty of the free YubiKey
    I avoid Google Authenticator but use Authy but it has its pros and cons.
    There is a password manager and 2fa builtin called bitwarden but again pros and cons esp having all eggs in one basket.
