Thread: Do you use two-factor verification to secure your accounts?

  1. #1

    Default Do you use two-factor verification to secure your accounts?

    Do you use two-factor authentication like Google Authenticator or SMS verification to keep your online accounts secure?

    You'd be stupid not to.
    I believe posters are recognised by their sig... so I made one.

    I use two factor authentication, with all the authenticating apps on my phone sitting in a secure folder that requires a pattern to unlock. The nice thing is that this functionality is built into the OS, not the launcher, so if someone tries to run them via another launcher or via the play store, it simply blocks the launch.

    They will need to use the waterboarding method of decryption to access my stuff.

    Nope.

    Besides my Capitec security dongle (and sites that insist on sending a SMS code for login or changes), I don't.

    Most definitely. Anywhere and everywhere that supports it.

    ATM's will be the first (maybe along with POS) to require biometric auth on a large scale.
