do you even know what youre talking about? authy does not send any SMS based 2FA keys.


I used to use Authy and at that time you could recover all of your 2FA keys to a device by receiving SMS confirmation.
Haven't used it since I realized that (having gone through the process) and I will certainly never use their service again.

Do YOU know what YOU'RE talking about?


So basically what you're saying is you're complaining that there is too MUCH security and you don't want to deal with it, because it's too secure.

Gotcha.

Have fun with that "security" when someone hijacks your sim card with a simple SE call to your cell provider and takes all your stuff ;)

as i said.. you cannot do ANYTHING with sms confirmation without another master password thats linked to your account


If your passwords are weak enough that you need 2FA in the first place... Good luck with that.

i guess you guys in the states dont verify your callers? no changes can be made until identity is confirmed.
