Getting Started with Your YubiKey

Applicable Products

This article applies to all YubiKey and Security Key devices.


To get started using your YubiKey, see Getting Started. Note that, in many cases, it is not necessary to configure your key prior to using it with online services, so it is recommended that you make a configuration change to your key only if instructed to do so by setup instructions for a particular service.

If you find that certain services you have accounts with are not listed in our Works With YubiKey Catalog, but they support authenticator apps, you should be able to use a YubiKey with them by following the general guidance in this article.
