• You will need a YubiKey hardware token (Standard, Edge, Neo, 4 or 5).
  • Please contact your institution to request a YubiKey hardware token, or order a YubiKey yourself online.
  • You will need access to your institutional e-mail account.
  • You will need a device with a USB-port

Your institution determines

  • which tokens you can register
  • how many tokens you can register
  • how to activate a token

So you may not be able to choose some tokens or activation methods.


Handle your YubiKey with care

  • Your YubiKey token is private, do not share your YubiKey with others.
  • Never leave your YubiKey unattended; keep your YubiKey separated from your computer


  • Please visit the Registration Portal and start a new token registration.
  • Choose YubiKey and register your YubiKey token you want to use for future logins.
  • Follow the instructions in the Registration Portal.
  • Done registering your token? Then you still have to activate your token. Depending on your situation or the requirements of your institution, you must choose an activation method, or you will immediately see instructions for the method that is right for you:
    • Activate yourself; you do this by choosing a recovery method (SMS or recovery code).
    • Activate at a service desk. Do this within 14 days, because your activation code expires after 14 days
    • Activate with an existing token.
  • Having trouble? Please read our manual
