Use of only a Yubikey for 2FA

I'd like to ONLY use Yubikeys for 2FA. But it seems like an authenticator app is required to have 2FA on. And there is no way to remove the authenticator from the 2FA options once the keys are set up...

Signing into the 1P binary on Windows after setting up the account on a MacOS machine did not even ask for the keys - only for the authenticator TOTP.

The account is a a Teams account. Should I be on some other plan to have Yubikeys only...?

    Hi @bitkeeper:

    At this time, not all of the 1Password apps support U2F as a 2FA option. Given that, an authenticator app is required to be set up as well for our apps that do not support a U2F physical token.

    However, I can see how that would be useful, so I'll add your voice internally for enforcing U2F as the only two-factor authentication method.

  • Sounds good. Thanks.

    I'd like to add my vote for allowing U2F only (as an option), so long as iOS and macOS are supported. I'd rather have two yubikeys than have to deal with another authenticator.

    Hey @Ziggy_Stahdust

    To clarify, Yubikey U2F is available today. It does however require that TOTP also be enabled.

    Use your security key as a second factor for your 1Password account
