Post subject:  Question about static PWs and OTPs?

I see several YubiKeys have support for a Static Password and OTPs..

I have a few YubiKeys and I really like them a lot, the way I use them is, on the 2nd factor, I simply touch the spot on the YubiKey and it enters the (what I believe is called a) One Time Password?

Is the Static Password a password that is the same each time?

Can one use both a Static Password and One Time Password on the same YubiKey? If this is possible how do you make the YubiKey enter either the Static PW or the OTP?

YubiKeys have two slots. Slot 1 is activated on short-press and slot 2 on long-press.

Resources on how to configure slot 2 to static password:

https://christiaanconover.com/blog/yubikeyconfig (Scroll down to the "Static Password" header)

Hope this helps!

Yes that helped thanks! Dam I really like these YubiKeys! I can't put it in words. I'm a bit paranoid (for good reason, fn ID thieves etc.) These YubiKeys, I can't say enough good things about them. The personalization tool really added extra value for me!! Thanks again henrik!
