Two Factor Authentication

Postby bpanike » Tue Oct 18, 2016 2:00 pm

Will the Church consider two factor authentication for login in the future? I personally use it where I can and use a third party authenticator. This seems especially important for unit leaders who have access to a great deal of private information via their login.

They already do in certain citations. A code is sent to your mobile number.

If you go to LDSAccount.LDS.org, on the left you will see an option "Two-Step Verification." You can choose to receive a verification code by text, or through an authenticator app (Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or Authy).

I saw that at one time, but when I went back to respond to this thread, it was gone.

Thanks, I did not know that was there, I will enable it. I did check, the option was there on my account, it may have to do with your calling.
