Add in option for two-factor Authentication (2FA)

SeajaysSeajays Member Posts: 6

As wave can connect to bank accounts and see lots of sensitive commercial information about a business, I would like to have the option of using two-factor authentication (2FA), such as Google Authenticator, in order to provide an additional level of security when logging to wave.

    This would be amazing and I am floored that this is not already a standard security measure. The sooner this is implemented, the better.

    I would agree with this and it is a pretty simple process to implement.

    Please please please implement this! This need to be an option as Wave accepts payments and pays out to the bank account on file. There is so0o0o0 much room for error without 2FA.

    Hey everyone, 100% that MFA/2FA is the way to go. 2FA is something that our teams are working towards this year, although I can't wager an ETA at this point. I just wanted to take the time to acknowledge that you're not alone in wanting this layer of security.

    I agree the sooner the better. I just got done linking sensitive information, and thought it would be a good idea to add my Yubikey or at least my authentication app as a 2FA, but was a worried that there were no options for this.

    +1 for TOTP (authenticator type apps) for 2FA

    Yup, 200% sketchy to use a website that contains secret information without 2FA.

    Wave wants my 2FA to link my bank account, but won't secure itself with 2FA?
    Whether by SMS text or an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator or Authy, you just gotta umplement this. Come on guys - this really is a no-brainer.

    2FA is a must! Please implement ASAP.

    @CodeMonkeyX @GlennF @Mor23 @MrSparkle @Wisecompany Thank you for sharing your feedback and thoughts. As @Ryan_W mentioned in his post above, two factor authentication is something that our teams are actively working towards.

    Do you have a timeline for when this is scheduled for production?

    @Zachselfless @EranM Great question! It looks like back in March we didn't have an exact ETA on introducing the 2FA feature but I've reached out to Erik, one of the Application Support Specialists, for an update on whether or not there is an ETA at this point! We will update this thread as soon as we get the scoop!

    @Zachselfless Just to chime in here. Our account access team currently doesn't have any plans to implement this any time soon -- but when/if we do, as Chelsea mentioned above, we will definitely update our users within this thread.

    Is there an update on Two-Factor Authentication? Is Wave working to make this happened? Thanks

  • AlexLAlexL Administrator Posts: 1,139 admin

    Hey @nando . No current plans to add this to the software, thanks for checking in though!

    Sorry, but this is just unacceptable. As a financial services company, you really must do this. Its an industry standard. The potential liability facing Wave now is monumental, should an account get breached where 2FA would have prevented it. Please reconsider adding 2FA!

    I would also like to add onto this, MFA/2FA is an absolute necessity for modern websites, especially one that handles sensitive information like financial data.

  • earthlingsteveearthlingsteve Member Posts: 1

    Add my 2 cents here and please get MFA/2FA! I can't believe this site doesn't have it yet - dealing with all this financial information and credit cards for customers, etc. Developers of Wave - please get MFA/2FA! It's critical.
