Secure your Google Account with YubiKey

 

 

When it comes to email accounts, strong security should be the top priority, especially in today’s environment where hackers and malware attacks are predominant. Traditional or basic login is simply not enough to ensure that accounts are secured. For this reason, the use of a security key is recommended for added protection.

 

security key is a device that provides high-level authentication services to prevent cyberattacks like account phishing. Enter the YubiKey, a hardware security key that delivers strong two-factor, multi-factor and passwordless authentication and is compatible with Google accounts.

 

To ensure complete protection for Google accounts, the following YubiKey products are recommended:

 

  • YubiKey 5 Series - a multi-protocol physical security key that delivers a strong defense against phishing and account takeovers with two-factor and multifactor authentication. It is suitable for all web services with its rich features and support services like the FIDO2, U2F and smartcard to secure accounts on all devices. USB-A, USB-C, Lightning and nano form factors are available.

 

  • YubiKey Bio Series - a link-up of Yubico’s hallmark security and increased user convenience through passwordless biometrics authentication. It is a single hardware key that provides impeccable login methods, including biometrics and PIN-based authentication supported by FIDO2/WebAuthn.

 

  • YubiKey FIPS Series - an FIPS 140-2 validated security key that blocks unauthorized access and allows government agencies and other regulated industries to meet the NIST’s Authenticator Assurance Level 3 (AAL3). This series offers 6 different compatibilities, including USB-A, USB-C, NFC and Lightning.

 

  • YubiKey Sky Series - an all-in-one security key that ensures innovative and flexible authentication and secures hundreds of online services like Google accounts with FIDO support.

 

Requirements

Setting up YubiKey to protect Google accounts from account takeovers is quick and convenient. Here are the requirements for setup:

  • Browser that natively supports U2F (Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox)

  • A Google account (Gmail, Google Docs, YouTube, Blogger, Google Ads)

 

For managed Google accounts, the administrator should enable two-step verification before using

YubiKey. If two-step verification is not available, contact the administrator for a security option.

 

How to Set Up YubiKey on Your Google Account

1. Turn on 2-step verification (proceed to the next step if already set up).

2. Add a security key, preferably add two YubiKeys or security keys where it can be interchangeable

or set up both as either a primary or a backup device.

3. Print out and/or save backup codes as reference once you have logged in without your YubiKey. Scroll

down once YubiKey(s) was added and click Show Codes, then click Download or Print and save

the codes.

4. Set up Google Authenticator as an alternative to generate verification codes if you don’t have

your YubiKey as they can still receive codes even if not connected to the Internet.

 

Your YubiKey is now registered to your account as your default two-step authentication. You have access to add another or remove a security key and see all devices that are registered in the account.

If you lose your YubiKey, remove it from your account at https://myaccount.google.com/security. Your account is highly secured as unauthorized users will still need your username and password to access the email.

 

Login to your Google Account

You can easily log in to your Google account using YubiKey with these simple steps:

 

1. Insert your YubiKey once you need to login to your Google account.

2. Enter your username and password.

3. Click the YubiKey once it begins to blink.

 

You can check the box to “Remember this computer for 30 days” if you want easy login without repeatedly inserting your YubiKey account. Click Use a verification or Authenticator app if you don’t have your YubiKey.

I recently found my missing money, wow, I have no idea how I got here. I invested $17,000 with a Bitcoin Bonus last month. It was initially going well until I attempted to exit. I was unable to accomplish this from my own wallet, but I was still able to see how rapidly my profit was increasing every day, which really surprised me. My entire strategy was to leverage their funds and income to get a new vehicle. Last month, Mr Brien Stone and his team saved my life. I read favorable testimonials about how they assisted folks in recovering their lost money. I was able to recover all of my lost money from the con artists thanks to them. I have to admit that I would definitely recommend this team for people who are in need to recover their money from thieves as I was.
The email I contacted will be included below.

I was impatient to carry out necessary research but I really wanted to jump on the crypto trading and investment buzz. Unfortunately for me, I invested 75,700 GBP worth of bitcoin with a fraudulent company. I was happy to watch my account grow to 214,575 GBP within a couple of weeks. But I didn't realize I was dealing with a scam company, until I tried to make an attempt to withdraw. I made a withdrawal request, and noticed my account was suddenly blocked for no apparent reason. I tried contacting customer support, but all to no avail. I needed my money back at all cost, because I couldn't afford to let it go. So I tried all possible means to make sure I recovered my scammed bitcoin. I did a lot of online search for help, and tried to see if there were other people who had any similar experience. I stumbled upon a cryptocurrency forum were a couple of people mentioned that they had been through the same process but were able to recover their lost cryptography funds with the help of Brien. So I file a report on brienstone02@gmail.com and he was able to help me get back all my lost funds within 1 weeks I feel indebted to him. Apart from trying to express my gratitude to them once again using this medium, I will recommend anybody who wants to recover scammed bitcoin, stolen cryptocurrency, funds lost to binary options forex, investment and any other form of online scam to reach out to brienstone02@gmail.com or contact him on telegram:t.me/brienstone all the best.
