Multi-factor authentication now available with Overclocked.net Mail - Page 2

post #11 of 16
You can still login via Thunderbird, or a different IMAP/POP Program.

If you go to your accounts page you are presented with this:
Attachment 216257

Clicking the highlighted section will bring you to a page that will ask you to verify your password.
After that is completed you will see a page like this:
Attachment 216258

If you notice the textbox and then the word generate after that a 16 alpha-numeric password which you can use for the program that is in question.

Once you hide the password, you will not be able to view it again.

Thats if you ask your cookies to remember the verification code. You can do it every 30 days, or every time you login.

It isn't a perfect system, especially for those without cell phones or with limited SMS, but for a low-maintenance extra layer of security it works reasonably well. The option of enabling this feature for your account is totally up to you, we don't plan to require it.
Oh, sweet deal, then.
