Multifactor authentication

action.manager says:
RTM is my trusted GTD system; it contains a lot of personal/confidential information. I would trust it even more if RTM would use/allow multifactor authentication (a combination of something "I know" -my password- and something "I have" -unique physical item-).

Examples are the way LastPass uses the YubiKey/Grid, or Google's 2-Step Verification.

Yes this would be awesome.

I vote for two factor authentication for RTM!

Thanks for reading.

agreed YubiKey, Verisign VIP (the one PayPal uses), or Google Authenticator would be cool... but I'm having a hard time imagining putting anything into RTM that would need anything close to that level of security... not voting either way on this one yet

Disappointed that there is still no multi factor authentication even in the year 2016! Using just a password is poor security nowadays. Not worth to loose all the tasks over a hack.

charalew says:
We really need this now. Task list data is inherently personally sensitive and with the combination of greater computing power AND the greatly increased levels of hacking activity it's gone from being desirable to essential. ToodleDo has offered this for years as do most of the major Cloud Services e.g. DropBox, Google, Microsoft, PayPal, Amazon etc

It's 2017. Passwords are not considered a secured authentication mechanism anymore.
Guys, you really need to go ahead and allow MFA, like Google Authenticator

Hi!

Respectfully, I do not understand why this subject is being discussed yet.

We all know how easy is to crack any service.
The only option to give us some safety (some!) is 2FA.

Please, Bob, prioritize this job for the next few months.

Or we are waiting for an attack to take action?

You there?

Would be awesome if RTM supported U2F. A fido U2F hardware key with Google Authenticator as a fallback would be the best implementation, in my opinion. The app as a fallback for browsers (such as Firefox) that don't have U2F built in (yet). I use a hardware U2F key from Yubico with my Gitlab account. It's really easy to use.

OK, so go to the top of this thread. You've had requests for 2FA since 2011!! And the latest request was just 9 days ago. This really needs to be prioritized, especially with all the hacking going on around us.

brian.waismeyer says:
Any updates here? I mistakenly assumed RTM had 2FA and I'm sadly going to have to migrate without it. I don't put much sensitive stuff into my account, but I'm also uncomfortable with communication/tracking software that isn't 2FA protected as a rule of thumb.

dave.liao says:
Hopefully two-factor authentication is in the works? A lot of your competitors lack 2FA, so this would be a good differentiator.

judydee2018 says:
Yes please please add 2FA would feel more comfortable recommending to others if it had this.

Presently my work around is to remove sensitive data and use abbreviations to replace personal info as much as poss but it’s a pain and far from 100% solution.

+1 for Google Authenticator (which means TOTP - that is the simple protocol that Google Authenticator uses, but there are many more clients as this is an open standard)

m0urs says:
+1
One use case (besides general higher security): I am often working on site at different customers. Many of them do SSL termination at their proxy servers in order to be able to scan for malicious Internet traffic. Therefore they would be able to log user credentials and afterwards use these credentials to login to RTM. With 2FA enabled they still would not be able to login as they do not have the second factor.

jonesv says:
I am a new user to RTM. MFA is the one thing I miss from my old task management system. Because RTM does not have MFA, I’m choosing not to keep sensitive personal information in the system. It would be much more useful with MFA. Thank you for considering it!

Especially granting RTM access to gmail and google drive services, MFA is a must! Please add this feature. Thank you.

We're into 2021, it's not acceptable for a service like Remember The Milk, to not to have this type of standard protection.

These days 2FA is almost becoming a must in terms of security, so please implement one or multiple 2FA methos (e.g. sms, authenticator app).

ahirschmann says:
2FA should really be added by now. It's 2021. Love RTM, but please add 2FA as an option for users. Right now RTM presents itself as an attack vector for potential hackers by being one of the few services out there that doesn't offer 2FA.

geojono says:
I agree that 2FA would be valuable, though I think we should steer clear of trying to "guilt" or "demand" features of the developers. They are busy with lots of requests and updates and they're doing a fantastic job with RTM. Let's make our requests known through these forums and then leave it to the development team to keep on developing at their discretion.
