Hello Yoko.

I never used FIDO keys before, but I started looking for it on the internet when I read this and I find it very interesting. I knew about U2F, but not about the keys.

I can't speak about popularity, tho!


Thanks comment, Paula!
I read your post (β€’Σ©β€’)β™‘

I knew about U2F, but not about the keys.

Oh, I see! It's surprise to me.
I learned about U2F knowing the security key. πŸ˜†


Heard of it, but never used it. Don't plan on using it in the near future either.
The inconvenience keeps me (and probably others) off it.


That and the price... Because while you could buy one, I imagine you'd be in pretty deep shit if you lost it. This is why Yubikey suggests that you buy two (go figure...), which then leaves you looking at close to $100 for what many see as an inconvenience.
