2fa on account login, #OATH-TOTP

By: mikejonesey4 | 01-08-2016 12:57

I ran a search for 2fa, it returned no results.

I'm keen to see 2fa implemented on account login, there are many open source tools to assist with the setup so it should be a relativley easy task to implement on the website.

This would increase security alot, and protect whilst loggin in on possibly unsafe wifi networks.

tag words: OATH-TOTP / OATH-HOTP / yubikey / yubico / gemalto / google-authenticator

Well I have to suspect that like with the additional methods of removing the content lock Giffgaff are pushing all the 2FA suggestions here in "working on it"

Like I said on a previous suggestion I am happy for the option of a 2FA log in but there are plenty of members probably most that wouldn't consider it necessary.

I just wonder why Giffgaff didn't move to add a 2 factor authentication for the payforit scams as soon as the demand for it began to be voiced.

Instead untold Giffgaff customers were let down and many lost money or suffered stress or both.

I keep being told by Giffgaff support that I have to comment here if I want to be heard, so here I am.

It is absolutely imperative that Giffgaff adds second or multi-factor authentication on their online accounts immediately. There are now at least 7 ideas that cover this:







Many of these are over 4 years old. It's very clear that no one reads or moderates this board.

That's fine - it's up to you to choose whether to moderate the board, but if you're not going then your agents need to stop telling people to raise ideas for things that have been open for 4 years already and be honest about the fact that no one cares what's written here.
