FIDO Security Keys, securing my financial data

I have recently acquired a security key, and I was looking into if I could secure my financial data in quicken with it. After looking over the application I realized that quicken does not support FIDO 2fa security.

Is there any action toward securing our financial data with public and private keys.

    I suggest you consider using the key to secure access to the Windows sign-on and the disk volume.

    More and more financial institutions are doing this and I would very much appreciate Quicken devs making this a priority, not only for Quicken, but for the institutions themselves upon login through Quicken. I'm sure very many more customers than the few up votes here would appreciate it. Thanks!

    I vote against adding a layer of complexity to Quicken based on a physical device which could be lost, stolen, or broken.

    I agree with @Rocket J Squirrel. My Quicken data is resident on my computer and my file is password protected (as I expect most users' are).  But this device is intended to secure access to online accounts or networks, which (even though Q users can use their mobile devices to access Quicken via Mobile) provides virtually no risk to most Quicken users. This would be (in theory only) an additional layer of unneeded and actually useless security.
