Ubuntu 18.04 set your SSH key

Logging in with a key is way safer (and easier) than using your password each time. Here is how to set it up on Ubuntu 18.

I assume you already have generated your SSH key. 

$ ssh-keygen -t rsa 4096 -C "my key"

once you have the key just run

ssh-copy-id your-user-name@your-ubuntu-server-name  
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/file.pub your-user-name@your-ubuntu-server-name

and you are all set! enjoy
