I have a yubico key that I use to login to financial exchanges. I set up the security for 2fa inside those sites. all is good but now when i login to some of those sites I get Windows Security Splash Screen pops up Saying “Making sure its you. from Brave browser: Your Key looks unfamiliar please try another”. Or enter pin. I have never correlated a PIN to my yubico key so used my windows one, it didnt accept it now it says I have tried too many PINS and will not let me proceed. I tried a normal site(adalite.io) that requests connection to some hardware and the same screen comes up. So how do I get Brave browser to correlate with windows PIN and my key?
How can this issue be reproduced?
1.Find a site that requests a yubico key as 2FA, and set it up
2. have a PIN “Hello windows” set up on your PC.
3. When you login to the site Im sure youll get the splash screen
Brave Version( check
Version 1.13.86 Chromium: 85.0.4183.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I believe it to be a windows security issue that is checking to make sure you are you before it allows a site that deals with “sensitive financial” material to access your PC but the correlation between a yubico key and windows is irrelevant. Makes no sense to me as why do you need a key when your browser wont even let you get that far!
