First dual security key launches with Lightning and USB-C, works with iPhone, iPad, Mac, more

After previewing the first Lightning security key for iPhone and iPad back at CES in January, Yubico has launched its YubiKey 5Ci today. The new hardware security key offers both Lightning and USB-C and is compatible with macOS, iOS, and more.



YubiKey 5Ci is the first security key to include a Lightning connector and brings fast and easy hardware authentication to iPhone and iPad as well as Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, and Android via the USB-C port. However, as noted by , YubiKey 5Ci won’t work with the 2018 iPad Pro’s USB-C port.

Once set up, YubiKey 5Ci is seamless to use, is battery-free, and doesn’t require an internet connection. Yubico notes that once you get it up and running on one iOS device it will be “recognized on any other Apple device of your choice.”

YubiKey 5Ci is compatible with popular password managers like 1Password, Dashlane, and LastPass, and is supported by Google, Dropbox, Salesforce.com, Facebook, Twitter, and more.

YubiKey 5Ci doesn’t offer NFC support like some of its other security keys. However, the inclusion of Lightning in this latest offering will likely be most compelling for Apple users.

The new dual Lightning and USB-C security key is available now in black or white for $70 direct from Yubico.
