Well, if the PIN protection actually works (unlike in the affected
Yubikeys) and you only enter the PIN in an environment where you're sure
nobody is sniffing the over-the-air data, I suppose you could decide to
rely on the fact that your PIN is still secret, preventing access to
unauthorized people.


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
