You Should Be Using Yubikeys!

Crosstalk Solutions

I freakin' love Yubikeys. I switched to Yubikeys from Google Authenticator about a year ago, and I will never go back. Not only are they great for TOTP 2FA, but they do so much more! In this video, I try to cover it all, and probably screw up a few facts but oh well that's not the point. The point is you should be using Yubikeys.
