A year of Wired and a YubiKey 4 for $21

As a long time fan of Wired magazine and a former subscriber I was a little bummed a while back when had gone to a paywall model. That is, I was bummed until I visited the site this morning and learned that I could get a year of Wired, access behind the paywall, and a limited-edition WIRED branded YubiKey 4 for $10 Canadian + $10 shipping and tax. 

When you consider that a YubiKey 4 is being offered on for $53.00 that's a heck of a deal! What does a YubiKey 4 do for you?

  • Strong two-factor hardware based authentication
  • Easy and fast authentication with a single touch
  • Reduces IT operational costs
  • Multiprotocol support on a single key
  • Crush-resistant and waterproof
  • Choice of USB-A and USB-C form factors
  • Made in the USA & Sweden

Basically, it's a small USB dongle that you insert into your PC and use to login to websites. It provides you with the 2 factor authentication that security experts have been urging you to use for years!
