2FA Beyond SMS

Wall Hub 2:20pm

Chat on Slack


SMS is by far the most common method of delivering a 2FA token to the user. Unfortunately, it's also unreliable, insecure, and an unpleasant user experience. In this talk we'll discuss the necessity of 2FA, the weaknesses of SMS based 2FA, and how to use the Authy Android SDK to add native push based authentication to your apps to create a secure and seamless authentication for your users.
