In an effort to protect your status page from brute-force attacks and stolen credentials, we released support for Yubico YubiKey two factor authentication.

It’s super simple to set up:

  1. Obtain a YubiKey device. If you don’t already have one, they may be purchased here.
  2. Sign in to the Dashboard and navigate to the Account view.
  3. Enter your OTP using the YubiKey in the Yubico Authentication box.

If the YubiKey connection was successful your account will show YubiKey Connected
yubikey-connected

That’s all folks! Every time you sign in to Status.io you can just tap your YubiKey while selecting the OTP field.

We’re always happy to help if you run into any issues or have a suggestion.
