A friend of mine suggested YubiKey as a more secure way for password identification. I am looking at a way to make my private passwords safer, however, I have read reviews saying that YubiKey is quite complicated.

Will the investment in time and money be worth it? Will it keep my data 100% secure?

Hello Andrew

What your friend suggested is absolutely correct. There might be only a few other affordable solutions such as Yubikey. If you are interested in a ensuring a very high security to your passwords then definitely Yubikey is worth it. Regarding the complications, you need to associate it with password managers such as 1Password or Last Pass so that you really need not worry bout complications anymore. If allow multi factor authentication on these databases, it would be nearly impossible for anybody to extract your passwords. Two way authentication is definitely highly secure.
