The End of Yubikeys as 2-Factor-Authentication? Google Breaks 2FA with Yubikeys in Favor of Passkeys

It seems that you can no longer register a FIDO2 compliant hardware token, like a Yubikey, as 2-factor-authentication method on Google. It can now only be registered as a Passkey. If you have previously registered it as a 2fa hardware key, it still works: it’s just that the registration interface is gone.

I suppose it’s the natural progression of things, but it is a bit annoying if you’re not ready for Passkeys yet.

Luckily, my co-worker worked out you can actually still register it if you use the direct link

Those that have multiple accounts can add the standard /u/1/, /u/2/, etc. to the end of Thanks Jakub!
