    There have been discussions about securing your online accounts and the role of MFA2/2FA in protecting against phishing attacks and one way is using hardware security keys like Yubikey. Now Cloudflare announced for their 12th birthday week announcements that they have partnered with Yubikey to offer discounted Yubikey security keys to all Cloudflare customers https://blog.cloudflare.com/making-phishing-defense-seamless-cloudflare-yubico/ :D



    I use Yubikey 5 NFC USB-A and USB-C security keys to secure all my email addresses and most supported online accounts. I wrote a guide on how I use Yubikey to secure my Cloudflare accounts at How To Setup YubiKey 5 NFC Security Key For Cloudflare Account Logins - Centmin Mod Blog. I specifically bought my first Yubikey for securing my Cloudflare accounts first but now extended it to all my supported online accounts including Google, Twitter, Github and most web host providers that support them.

    If you set up Google Workspace as an authentication provider Google Workspace ยท Cloudflare Zero Trust docs, then you set setup Yubikey for Google Workspace and have your login pages authenticated via Yubikey by way of CF Access :D

    How I protect my Xenforo/Wordpress admin pages and dev/staging sites these days - at least for 1st layer authentication protection :)
