About Hard Tokens

The hard token is an alternative method for those who are unable to use the Authenticator app or other phone options for multi-factor authentication. To get started, purchase a YubiKey hard token device from the Tech Store.

Students without a smartphone or the ability to receive text messages should create a ticket to avoid being locked out of your UARK account while waiting to receive your hard token device. 

How It Works

Once you have completed the setup steps, the YubiKey hard token device is inserted into your computer's USB drive. With the token plugged into your computer, it will automatically verify your account when logging into a UARK online service from that computer.


Note: If you use multiple computers, you must have your YubiKey with you to use with the other computers. The Yubico Authenticator application must be installed on any computer you use to log into UARK online services.
