Does 1Password work well with Yubikey?

Pardon me if this has been asked previously. I would like to ask does 1Password work well with Yubikey? I was quite drawn by the marketing aspect of Yubikey that it prevents account take overs. Currently I am using Authy as 2FA in conjunction with 1Password. I was thinking of placing all my 2FA's into 1Password and having Yubi key as the master key to reduce complexity.

As such, [1] can i ask does anyone have success with using Yubi Key with 1 Password, [2] does 1Password offer support with Yubi key, [3] Does the arrangement of keeping my 2FA tokens in 1Password sound with yubi key as the master key?

Kind regards.

    Hi @bear67512

    Thanks for the question. :) Yes, 1Password's device authorization process for 1Password accounts does support using a Yubikey as an additional layer of protection(*). It does not serve as a replacement for the Master Password, though. Normally when to sign into 1Password from a device for the first time you need your Master Password and Secret Key. If you enable a Yubikey for your account in addition to needing those two things to sign in from a new device you will also need the Yubikey. It does not impact how 1Password unlocks subsequent to authorizing the device.

    (*) Please note that currently only the web app and 1Password for iOS app support Yubikeys. When you add a Yubikey to your account you'll also need to enable TOTP. To sign in on a device that doesn't support Yubikey you'll use the TOTP code.

    You can read more, including which specific models are supported, here:

    Use your U2F security key as a second factor for your 1Password account

    I hope that helps!
