Dropbox now has 2 step authentication

And yes it supports the google authenticator mobile app!!!


It took like a minute setting it up with the the iphone google authenticator app. Just make sure you back up the emergency code they issue you someplace safe. I’ve been waiting for this especially if you sync 1password through dropbox.

I too am thrilled with this, though I use text messages. What’s the benefit of the authenticator app?

Great, do they have a working web interface again yet?

Huh? Works great for me.

You don’t eat into your texting plan and it’s a local app (android or iOS) that you can run instantly.

You can use it when you don’t have cellular service. For example, if you want to check your gmail from an Internet cafe while you’re on vacation in Mexico.

Awesome news. I wish Evernote would enable 2-factor…

Oohhhh, nifty, I’ll give the authenticator a try, thanks!

I like how LastPass does their two-factor. You can use an app, but if you don’t have a smartphone or don’t like the app, they’ll generate a randomized grid for you to print out and carry around. Low tech and super easy, with no requirement to have a smartphone.
