Two Factor Authentication

Who out there is using two factor authentication with their accounts? I enabled two factor on all my social accounts, and for sure my Microsoft and Lastpass accounts. With my MS and Lastpass I am using the MS authenticator app for one time password. Other accounts I have a text sent to my phone. The one interesting thing that happened was my HTC 8X bit the dust and I used that phone for the Authenticator. So I had to go in and disable two factor in my MS and Lastpass account until I got a new phone. I have a love hate relationship with two factor.  When I am using it my accounts feel very secure, but it can be a pain adding another step to logging in. I am so looking forward to Steve Gibson's SQRL security.

I use it on all accounts that offer it.  While a pain, you really do get used to it.  Authenticator app is great....and happy that it is an open standard, so you can MS auth for your Google accounts or the Google Authenticator on android for your MS accounts etc....
