Title: Two factor authentication (2FA) on Hydrogenaud.io
Post by: Compact Dick on 2018-06-10 00:37:56
While updating my profile, I noticed that the forum software now offers Two Factor Authentication (2FA) for an added layer of security. I enabled it, added the code to my Authenticator app as well as KeePass, and it works flawlessly. KeePass even auto-types the OTP on the login page.

Anyone else here who uses 2FA?

I started using it a while back, I was probably the first, since I had to enable the feature in the forum for it to appear.

Thanks for enabling it. Since then, I've noticed a few other forums offer authenticator-based 2FA as well. Since there's no need to provide a mobile phone number, this is more or less a no-brainer for added security, especially since some websites have not moved to HTTPS.

I've found the following programmes/apps essential for TOTP management:


Hope that's of some help to anyone curious about using OTP codes.

Nice. Pity that Pass4Win is no longer developed, but I will play around with qtpass.

The beauty of KeePass is that it auto-types the OTP, as well. This is the sequence I use:

Code: [Select]
{USERNAME}{ENTER}{DELAY 4000}{PASSWORD}{TAB}{TOTP}{ENTER}

After entering the username alone, HA takes me to a page where the password and OTP can be entered. A delay of 4 seconds is enough for the second page to be ready.

Wouldnt mind it if KeePass had a REd Steam/Blizzard authenticator.
