Quick identification

With the YubiKey Manager, you can view the key version and check for software updates.


FIDO2 settings

In the “Applications” tab, you can set or change the PIN code for using YubiKey. Also, if you wish, you can reset the pin code in this tab. But be careful: this action will remove all keys from your account.

PIV settings

You can set or change the PIN code and PUK code of the YubiKey that supports the smart card function. To do this, find the corresponding tab in the “Programs” section.

In the same section, you can add certificates or return PIV to factory settings. But be careful: this way you will also delete all the certificates you configured earlier.


Function settings

In the “Interfaces” section, you can disable or enable the functions of the YubiKey keys according to your requests.

OTP settings

The YubiKey has two slots (Short Touch and Long Touch). This tool can configure Yubico OTP credentials, static password, call-response credentials, or OATH HOTP credentials in one or both of these slots.

You can set up an OTP call by touching the metal plate of the YubiKey in the “Programs” tab.



Not only does this tool support any YubiKey, it can also check their type and firmware version. Thanks to the manager, you can configure advanced settings such as long or short touch.
