Bitcoin Exchanges Should Consider Integrating Microsoft Authenticator
Keeping in mind how this solution is available on iOS as well, it would make sense for Bitcoin exchanges to integrate it.
If there is one thing people should have learned from the Bitfinex hack, it is that security remains of the utmost importance. While users can’t do much about platform security beyond their control they should take appropriate steps to protect their own account. The new Microsoft Authenticator, which is now available on Android devices, may start making its way to Bitcoin exchanges soon.
There us nothing worse for Bitcoin users to have funds stolen from their account due to their own errors. Protecting an account with just a password is no longer sufficient. For some reason, two-factor authentication is not as common as it should be. That is rather worrisome, considering there are plenty of solutions available.
