# Setup YubiKey
We love Yubikey. They are one of the easiest way to protect your account against week nad even stolen passwords. We strongly recommend setting up such a 2-Factor Authentication to protect your account. Once you call yourself the proud owner of a Yubikey, follow the guide below. If you still don't have one, you can buy them online here: yubico.com/store/ (opens new window) We advise you to setup always two Yubikeys, so you always have a spare one, that you can use in case your first Yubikey gets lost.
