Apple crowd included – as NFC can now be used for something other than Apple Pay

Security token biz Yubico has a new key out today, its latest-generation two-factor encryption (2FA) authentication unit, the Yubico 5C NFC, which includes support for PCs and mobile devices using USB-C, as well as a built-in NFC radio.

Previous generations of the Yubikey have had USB-C and NFC, but not in a complete package. The most recent NFC-touting device came with an old-school rectangular USB-A connector, liming its usefulness for new computers, which might not include them. The last model offering USB-C lacked NFC — although it did come with a built-in Lightning plug, effectively covering all the bases of the mobile market.
