Hi All,

I am curious what the chances are that the forum will provide optional google 2 factor authentication?

Best,

I want this feature too. I'm too paranoid to use any sites seriously without 2FA.

2FA via text would be super-duper.

Because I don't want to [buy stuff off / lend coins / etc] to a hacked account, or have people lend to me when my account is hacked?

This has basically become an absolute requirement at this point. Please consider implementing 2FA

2FA via text would be super-duper.

+1 for this.  What are the costs to do this since it relies on international texts?  My bank still seems to think it is ok to charge me 25c per text!

2fauth via MMS is simply not doable with everyone on the forum who is not in the US. Google Auth is the way to go.

Average time between signing on to bitcointalk: Two weeks. Please don't expect responses any faster than that!

Yubikey & GA.  No need for silly international texts and such.


If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

I definitely agree. This is a must-have as large auctions and trades are taking place on the forum.
Also the amount of accounts compromised greatly undermines the value of the trust network implemented (and the reliability of "reputation" in general).

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

Absolutely agree, my account was hacked last night and someone posted a ton of random stuff. It would be great to have this.

This is a really great idea, especially given the trust that is/can be associated with these accounts.

Google Authenticator would be the way to go, maybe there is some SMF plugin.

Yes, please - why not use some of the forum's wealth to enable 2FA via SMS?
