Two-step log-on verification

Mozy would be much more secure with some type of two step logon verification such as an email being sent to the email address on file, or a text message sent before being to access Mozy on-line.

 

If I understood tech support correctly you have three attempts at entering a password before being logged out for 30 minutes. After the 30 minute timeout a hacker could guess three more times and keep going until the correct password is guessed.

 

To the best of my knowledge all of my on-line accounts have a two-step verification option including email, Amazon, Yahoo mail, gmail, banking, investing,etc.

 

I am glad Mozy offers the strong encription but what good is it if someone guesses your password and just copies all your files from the Mozy web-site?

 

I am hoping that you are able to offer two step verification in the near future as I have both  personal and business accounts with Mozy and this would help me feel better about my data.

@dr1 - Thank you for suggesting this option. It would certainly be a fantastic security addition. I will bring this up with our developers!

Agreed, really great option for those who want it. I have two-step verification set up on some of my secure accounts and I find it very comforting to know there's an extra safeguard in place.
