Re: Two factor auth with yubikey

Hi lodok,

thank you for your post.

Unfortunately Yubikey is not working with TeamViewer 2FA, only Authenticator Apps that do support Time-based Authentication works with our software (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time-based_authentication)

We reccomend to you to use Google Authenticator,

for Android you can download it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.authenticator2&hl=en

for iOs from here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-authenticator/id388497605?mt=8

Enjoy using TeamViewer and it's good to hear that you do care about security like we do!

Re: Two factor auth with yubikey

I love security, but I hate the Captcha used.

Hoped to get rid of those annoying pictures by using yubikey without installing apps.

Thank you for your reply
