Who supports 2FA (two-factor authentication)?

Ken Harthun Ken Harthun Profile: Ken Harthun

In light of the plethora of data breaches in the news, it behooves us to use two-factor authentication (2FA) where it is available. I use it for important accounts like LastPass, eBay and PayPal. Where it is offered on other financial accounts, I use it. You should, too. But how do you know who offers it? Here is a great website that shows who does and doesn’t offer 2FA and what methods they use: http://twofactorauth.org/.

I’m going to be setting up 2FA on all of the listed services I use and for which I don’t currently have 2FA enabled. I suggest you do the same. Can’t hurt and can only help by making it more difficult for the cybercriminals to get access to your information.
