Everyone has at least one password, but that's not enough anymore. When is that not enough? Passwords get out of your hands all the time. You know your password, but what about using something you have in addition to what you know. Let's look at how you can leverage your mobile device for added security, and implement it in your projects. This talk will cover how two factor auth works, how to use it and the ins and outs of rolling your own solution using Time-based One-time Password (TOTP) (and the Google Authenticator app) or a third party service and the pitfalls of both. AWS, Mailchimp, Dropbox and Facebook integrate two factor authentication and you can too! There's no reason not to use it!
