Hello,

Hope you are well.

I set my Yubikey up as a method of logging into my Mac by following the steps in this pdf:
https://www.yubico.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Yubico_YubiKeyMacOSXLogin_en.pdf

I seem to have locked myself out of, or disabled the PIN somehow :oops: .

When I boot my machine, I am first prompted for my actual password, which upon entering it, another login window appears asking for PIN. Even though I am entering the correct PIN, which worked previously in testing, I can not unlock my computer.

Are there steps I can use to troubleshoot/disable the PIN?

I attempted to boot into recovery mode and remove the lines I added in
Code:
/etc/pam.d/screensaver

and
Code:
/etc/pam.d/authorization


but in recovery mode it doesn't look like those edits are even there.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Justin
