Yubico recently updated its device support, and now Yubico security keys are compatible with Windows devices. Previously, Yubico security keys would allow users to sign into a number of different applications, including Gmail, Dropbox, and LastPass. The security keys were also compatible with Mac and Linux computers, however, the security keys will now also be compatible with any device running Windows 7, 8.1 or 10.
Using a security key provides far more protection than conventional passwords. The new compatibility with Windows also features backup keys as well as recovery methods, which allow users to sign in to their account if a key has been misplaced.
Compatibility with Microsoft could be an asset for Yubico, as it can now reach a much wider user base.
