What YubiKey devices will work with my iOS Device

Strongbox supports YubiKey's only via the following methods on iOS devices:

  • Lightning
  • NFC

Please not that YubiKey over USB-C is NOT SUPPORTED because Yubico have decided not to support this configuration.

This is not a Strongbox design decision. This means that on certain iOS devices without NFC or Lightning support (certain iPads e.g iPad Air (4th generation) at the moment) you CANNOT use a YubiKey to protect or unlock your database.

For the list of compatible YubiKey keys please see Yubico's Strongbox product page here:
