Social networks

Social networks are platforms that unite people from all over the world with common interests. Social networks are used for communication, exchange of experience, search for professionals and sale of goods and services. Each account can contain a base of hundreds of friends and thousands of followers. Social networks can be linked to other platforms and provide single sign-on without authorization. Therefore, it is highly desirable to protect access to social networks using two-factor authentication and hardware security keys.

Next, we provide detailed information about YubiKey social network compatible security keys and settings.
