My work use Google authenticator on our personal devices for a log in to the remote server. Recently had an issue where I couldn't charge my phone as it thought it had moisture in the charging port and was quickly running out of battery. Would have been a good way to get out of working.Why the push for 2FA if there has been no security breach? securing an email address is basic internet that most people have managed for 20+ years.
What with the COVID passports will people be able to do anything in the future without a mobile phone? hey guys link everything to your mobile phone so we can monitor all of your text messages and see all of your accounts and whenever you login. Bye bye privacy.

It's been nice knowing you.Nah I'll let the Russians have my account.
Authenticators have a limit?and my authenticator is already chock full
Even one is one too many.How many have had their accounts compromised?
That's why I wound up turning it off on this site. 30 days per device just became irritating.
Left my previous place of employment last Feb and my manager immediately disabled 2FA on every site I had enabled it on because a handful of people complained it was too difficult to use and a massive inconvenience.
A year and a single phishing email later, some Russians walked on to their network and Hello Kitty ran riot which cost them their entire domain and over a million pounds.
I love 2FA/MFA and would expect every single person on a computer forum such as this to be using it.
Loved the place, loved most of the staff and people I worked with but a single complaint from one user often led to management forcing policy changes on IT so I was just glad not to be there when it happened.I hope you are feeling quite smug! I remember you mentioning that place was not the greatest!
I love two factor. I use it pretty much everywhere I can, but I feel like I'm constantly getting nagged to sign into some service again because of the short expirations. And it's usually always when I've left my phone in another room.
My company has forced two factor for domain/email logins which is great. But they also disabled all biometric login options through group policy (fingerprint scanner, Windows hello face scan etc) so I now have a really weak windows/email password that I have to remember to login with quickly rather than a secure randomly generated one
