Dropbox has unveiled an experimental build that adds two-factor authentication to subscribers' accounts. Subscribers can try out build 1.5.12, and Dropbox is asking those who are experimenting with it for their comments. The response so far appears to be overwhelmingly positive. Dropbox plans to roll out two-factor authentication as an option to all subscribers' accounts in the future. "I can definitely confirm that two-factor authentication is being used," said Dropbox spokesperson Lydia Chan.
It's nice to see that leading companies in their respective verticals are giving users the perfect balance between security and user experience by implementing 2FA which allows us to telesign into our accounts. I know some will claim this make things more complicated, but the slight inconvenience each time you log in is worth the confidence of knowing your info is secure. I'm hoping that more companies start to offer this awesome functionality. This should be a prerequisite to any system that wants to promote itself as being secure.
