Swapping Yubico OTP from Slot 1 to Slot 2

Applicable Products


You may occasionally find that you want to move the Yubico OTP from its default location in Slot 1 to Slot 2. One reason you might want to do this is to avoid accidentally sending an OTP code by pressing the YubiKey. Moving the Yubico OTP to Slot 2 requires a "press and hold" (Slot 1 requires just a short tap). This can be done using either the YubiKey Manager or YubiKey Personalization Tool.

YubiKey Manager

  1. Open YubiKey Manager.
  2. Click Configure... to the right of the OTP application.
  3. Click the Swap... button.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the swap.

YubiKey Personalization Tool

  1. Open the YubiKey Personalization Tool.
  2. Click Settings from the top menu, then click Update Settings.
  3. Under Configuration Slot, click Configuration Slot 1.
  4. Click Swap.
