Do you think that Two-factor authentication is the worst thing ever?
Despite being useful, it can be troublesome when you have a phone.
You know, most social network like twitter uses Two factor authentication for safety purposes.
Am i the only one that have that issue?
Any sort of account that holds assets should be protected by 2FA at a minimum. This includes banks, investments, credit, etc. If the only reason you don't like 2FA is for the inconvenience, just consider how inconvenient it would be to have to file a fraud claim or dispute credit issues that were caused by poor security practices. Even if you don't have a phone to receive 2FA codes, it's not that difficult to get an email and type it in. In my opinion, we should be looking for even tighter security measures given how vulnerable our information can be and the damage its misuse can cause.
2FA is very important. The only reason I don't use it everywhere yet is because I'm not a phone guy. I don't carry my phone everywhere with me, I'm not good at using my phone, and I don't have internet on my phone at most times. This makes using 2FA really tough for me. However, it's definitely a necessity, because stealing an account without 2FA turns out to be shockingly easy.

Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
There was a time that I absolutely hated 2FA. It always felt like more of an obstacle than a help. Especially for things like Steam where I'm logging in and out everyday. But it wasn't until my account was hacked that I started to take security measures a little more seriously, and these days whenever I have the option to enable 2FA, I try to.
