I have Two Step Verification turned on, using the Micro$oft Authetnciator app for Android on my cell.
Kinda irked that they originally were doing it via an app called Micro$oft App for Android, then arbitrarily changed - but instead of just changing the name of the app, they published a whole new app. I only figured it out when I FDRd my phone and clean installed the latest system image, and went to set up the old Microsoft App for Android - and it did not work....
At any rate, Micro$oft's TSV is easy to implement, and you get more than one option to enter your verification.
- I use the App,
- plus a Google Voice number for SMS codes,
- plus a non-Microsoft / Outlook / HoTMaiL / live.com account (GMail in my case),
- and I've also enable the OTP (One Time PW) function, of KeePass via an addon (via the TOTP - Timed OTP addon) and store the key in there for each account, so at any time I can open KeePass and have it generate a OTP for me on the fly as well.
It's relatively easy, and in this day and age, you're better off using some sort of TSV / TFA on every account that offers it.
Even here at 10F
Ahh, yeah, I can see that happening - although I don't see why that should be a trigger if someone authenticate's correctly with TSV authentication as well....
