I am using a Yubikey 5C as a MFA & smartcard for various application. On my Windows 10 desktop I have set up a FIDO2 PIN - so if I would like to use it within Firefox for example, I have to enter the PIN and touch the device afterwards.

If I do the same on my laptop which runs Manjaro Linux Firefox just asks me to touch it without a PIN and it works as well.

Is the PIN just an additional Windows security feature?
