2-factor authentication
« on: December 05, 2014, 03:06:58 PM »
Hello guys,
Do you plan to implement 2-factor authentication to the portal? Or at least enable logon notifications?
It is a little "scary" that using only a password someone could access my phone remotely and do A LOT of stuff with it...

Regards

Indeed it will be very good.
Meanwhile, please, use a strong and unique password in the portal.

@simosi you are absolutely right... A security platform such as Avast would probably be as vulnerable as any other site without a multi-factor or 2-step authentication which neither are available on Avast Account product!
@Lisandro, thank you for the suggestion for the strong password but I hope this becomes a priority for Avast.
Just a note to @Avast team, it has been 120 days today (Dec 12, 2017) since @simosi mentioned this to the Avast team. Looking forward to the much needed improvement.
