As more and more user accounts are hacked, we still hear about systems that still allow for simple password hints, security questions, and even worse will not allow for complex passwords. We know of at least three banks that will not allow special characters in their passwords and limit them to 14 character maximums. This lack of foresight on the part of the people that are supposed to be protecting our data is shocking to say the least. Even with easy access to items like TFA (Two-Factor Authentication) we still hear about security breaches and account hacks on a daily basis. So what do you do if an online service does not provide any two-factor authentication? Most would say you are out of luck, but there is something that might help keep things a little more safe than just the stock password that you are required to drop into your accounts.  This is the Yubikey which provides something like a secure token that you can add to your online accounts to put in a little more protection.
