Re: Vanguard 2-factor authentication becoming mandatory and available for non-US

My recommendation to vastly improve your cybersecurity: Get at least two Yubikeys. Keep one on a keychain or somewhere convenient, keep the other in a safe location. I use a fireproof document safe. Use Gmail and set up your Google account to require 2FA using either your Yubikeys or a push notific...

Re: Investors: be aware of weakness in 2FA + strengthening

There are a few things I have not seen mentioned: 1) If using U2F keys (e.g. Yubikey or something like it), you really should have more than one and disable other forms of 2FA. For example, we have four - one for me, one for my spouse, one backup in the house, and one off-site backup at the bank. Al...

I am able to confirm that VUSXX is available on YouInvest. I did not have a fee when buying into it.
