2 stage authentication and Android

Postby markmills767 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:49 am

Hi,

I use a Yubikey to give me two factor authentication on my Windows PC. I have a linked account on an Android device where I use Google Authenticator for 2FA

If someone hacks my master password, what is to stop them from installing LastPass on their Android device and logging into my account?

Thanks
Mark

They don't have your Yubikey or Google Authenticator token.

OK, I disabled all 2FA except Yubikey. I installed LastPass on an Android and tried to log in. It asked me for a Yubikey and offered to disable 2FA with Yubikey. When I asked it to disable, it said it would send an email with further instructions. I didn't follow through with this.

Assuming that this is a way of recovering from a lost Yubikey, I figure that my 2FA is as secure as my email password. Am I right in this?
