Enabling 2FA login

I came across this article on enabling two-factor-authentication for several accounts.

I noticed that not only are there several more services now offering 2FA than when I last checked a few months back. But once I set out to enable my accounts on these services I also noticed that several of them now supports apps in addition to SMS-messages.
And I’m also very glad that the apps are becoming more generic so I don’t need to have a mass of apps installed on my phone, but rather that it’s now possible to use for example Microsoft Authenticator not only for Microsofts own accounts but also for Google, Twitter, Dropbox, Amazon and others.

The article doesn’t mention Steam though, but I think it should. Steam is quite huge as platform and enabling 2FA was both easy and well worth it, considering the info stored there. And neither is Apple mentioned which is a little odd, but AppleID is also very smooth to enable for 2FA.

There are also some identity services missing in the article where maybe I should look more into their respective settings to see if they now support easy to use 2FA as well.

I’m thinking specifically of WordPress, Instagram, IMDb and Origin. And of course all the web shops where personal info is stored.

And lastly what I’d like to see now is support in Password Safe for PC and the pwSafe iOS app for tagging accounts with a green colour flag if they’re 2FA enabled.
