Evernote was forced to reset passwords for all its users over the weekend after noticing something fishy. Now, the company says it will adopt two-factor authentication to prevent further mishaps. Finally!
InformationWeek reports a statement from a company spokesman claiming that two-factor authentication was on the way all along. After the hack, the plans are “accelerating”. We would hope so.
Two-factor authentication isn’t impossible to crack, but it sure makes your account a little harder to infiltrate. All companies should take this cue. *cough Twitter cough* We’ve asked Evernote about what method of authentication it plans to use, and when you can expect the new security to kick in. We’ll update when we hear back. [InformationWeek]
