Hello,

I have just upgraded to 1Password 7 and have been working through updating my logins. A new feature of the software highlights which sites use two factor authentication, that you're not currently using.

I'd be interested in knowing who uses 2FA and if you use it whenever it's available or selectively on websites.

Personally speaking, I use 2FA on OcUK forums (mod team requirement) but have never really bothered on other websites because I already use complex 16 digit passwords. I suppose I don't see the need but maybe I am missing a trick :o

The iOS app I use is called "Authy" and has a nice Watch complication, but I'm not sold on the hassle for the sake of Amazon and Facebook etc.

I use it everywhere and use 1Password to store the one time password code so it's saved in the cloud.

You don't need Authy if you have 1Password as the 1Password watch app can display the one time passwords for you.
I <3 you

Didn’t realise 1Password could do this, which is definitely on my to do list tomorrow.

Came back to say that I've now enabled it on all logins where it's an option. Auto-copy to clipboard on the 1Password app on iOS is so good that I can't recommend it enough.

Go to website > tap the text to say use my login > authenticate with Face ID > notification pops up saying the OTP code has been copied > paste code > done
