Ideas and suggestions

Support two factor authentication

Are there plans to add two factor authentication? Particularly when logging into the MySMS.com web app.

Given how much data is stored about each user I think this would be a very good idea.

        I agree, this is an absolute must. In fact, I just cancelled my subscription after seeing how long people have been suggesting this without it being implemented. Information Security is an absolute must!

        I think this is an absolutley must for a service like this. offcaurse this should be an option since many users dont care about this. But for those of us who care about privacy and security, 2FA is a must!

        2FA has never been a compulsory implementation, it's always been optional.

        Despite being the most (current) practical solution to the insecure nature of passwords it's still to complicated for the average user to want to use.

        That's a good point, bravadon. On the other hand, many of our users want the login to be as easy as possible and therefore maybe wouldn't like to take the time for a 2FA.

        I hope that we get some additional feedback from other users so that we can start a discussion here.

        Best regards, René

        Thanks. I'm surprised it's not been mentioned before. It's probably not well known about.

        I've started to use 2FA on important accounts, namely Email, Facebook and PayPal. I'd say MySMS goes into that category too.

        Thank you for your nice idea, bradavon!

        In this forum, other users can vote for feature requests or give additional feedback.

        Let's see if we get some votes on this idea here,

        cheers, René
