Disable yubikey autotyping

I recently got a couple of yubikeys because the world is a scary place. Unfortunately, as soon as I touched one of them, it autotyped a 45 chars random-looking string, which was super-annoying. Apparently, it's a feature, and it's used for OTP. Since I don't use OTP, nor am happy with having random characters typed everywhere, here is how to fix this behaviour:

$ sudo apt install -y yubikey-manager
$ ykman otp delete 1
Do you really want to delete the configuration of slot 1? [y/N]: y
Deleting the configuration of slot 1...
