Two Factor/Two Step Authenitcation

Would you use Two-Factor/Two-Step Authentication if we were to allow Two-factor/Two-Step authentication to be used?

Two Factor/Two Step Authenitcation

Essentially a user can enable the Authentication and have it require both your password and you verifying something(usually in a Text, App, e-mail), to log in (Two-Factor and Two-Step). Although we could also allow Swekey which adds another layer of protection(using Two-Factor Authentication).

Both of these would be able to be enabled by the user if they wish, and allows users to secure their account even better. This would be ideal, especially if using the account in public places(plus when Mixed with Swekey, it would make it hard as fuck to get into your account since you would need: Your Password, your e-mail(or whatever way you choose to help authenticate) and your Swekey.)

This would mainly help secure your account and add extra options.

Ah. I suppose it would be nice to have the option, but to be honest, I wouldn't even consider using it.

I've always hated those things and would never use it if I have a choice in the matter.

I'd probably use this. A few minutes ago my sister got on my laptop after a fight we had and I went AFK. She went into some section of SS, the IRC I believe, and a couple of other forums I frequent, and thankfully I don't see any damage.

Can't believe I have to utilize this now but I'm going to put a pass on my laptop so when I go AFK, I'll just logout and one will need to know the password to be able to re-login.

Seven crappy hours of our lives.
