Multi-factor

  • Is there/will there ever be the ability to use multi-factor?

    MFA is now standard in so many areas and its something that should be implemented if Opera is to ever be taken as any kind of serious contender in the browser market, I love Opera but this lack of what is now basic security pains me constantly.

  • Moved to Opera account area since it doesn't seem to be related to the browser itself.

  • Same here, it's rather primitive that the access is granted by email and password only and all the other major browsers already have it as far as I am aware.

  • No one has said how you do 2-factor authentication with only one factor ...

    I think this is the wrong forum - I think they do mean the browser - but I still don't get it.

  • As far as I know, two factors authentication is something implemented by the sites, that's why they are talking about the login at Opera account.

    I have two factors authentication enabled in many sites and it works fine.

  • I was referring to the Opera account indeed, which can be in the Browser, on the website, etc. all being handled by the same authentication layer. A mobile sms confirmation code for unrecognized devices would be a good start.
