New to LastPass Premium - Using Yubikey & Minimum Password Length

I upgraded to Premium and have my Yubikeys now. One thing I am a little nervous about: I have always used a super long password phrase with LastPass free. I would like to shorten it up some so I can log in on the mobile with less imput.

 

Any suggestions for minimum password length? I mean, it will be impossible for anyone to log into my account without the physical key. Any other suggestions about using Yubikey that I should adopt?

Re: New to LastPass Premium - Using Yubikey & Minimum Password Length

Hello,

 

We recommend using the following best practices when creating a Master Password:

  • Use a minimum of 12 characters, but the lengthier the better
  • Use upper case, lower case, numeric, and special character values
  • Make it pronounceable and memorable, but not easily guessed (e.g., a passphrase)
  • Make sure that it is unique only to you
  • Never use personal information

Yubikey may also have some helpful resources/guides on their site for more suggestions on using Yubikeys as well: https://www.yubico.com/works-with-yubikey/catalog/lastpass-premium-and-families/
