Authenticator works even when you don't have any sort of network available for your smartphone. I don't know about your mobile provider, but I don't trust mine to deliver SMS messages in anything that resembles a timely manner. Beyond that, it is more secure, as you've noted.

I was able to work around this by turning on 2-step verification, setting up app passwords, then turning 2-step verification back off. When you turn it off, it asks if you want to clear verification data. I said no; I don't know whether that matters. After turning it off, the app passwords link is still available, and my applications still login fine.

I assume you want to create your control panel app so that users can log in to it via Google's login services. If that's the case, you can limit access to your app in at least two different ways: If you follow these guidelines, that is, create your control panel app with Google Apps in mind, it will be installed along your existing Google Services. As such, ...

I ran into this problem as well, and after a while determined it's related to the Keychain Access where the passwords are stored. One forum I found suggested running a "Repair" of the login keychain (available via the "First Aid" menu item), which resolved the problem for some people. For me, however, the repair process found nothing to fix. Finally, I ...

The problem was that my account has been frozen (even tough on login, the message is "incorrect email or password"). Amazon wanted me to send them a document by fax to prove my identity. I have no fax. I ended up creating another account.

I don't know where you're located, but in my corner of the world, this is not unusual. If you wish to push text messages, you will need to sign up with an SMS service provider. You can reserve a short, 4-digit number for your services, which is expensive. Or you can reserve a keyword within a 4-digit number. The number is then shared among other services, ...

What is the advantage of Google forcing me to keep me cellphone on, working and with me at all times The point being if your password is stolen/compromised, there's an additional step required before it can be accessed by the attacker. keep me cellphone on, working and with me at all times when I don't have my phone and I'll want to login Why must I now ...

Two-factor authentication is now available on WordPress.com blogs. Wordpress.com blogs now supports two-factor authentication both via Google Authenticator as well as SMS. See Wordpress | Two Step Authentication for an how-to on setting it up.

Those steps are correct for example if you go to your settings and go to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab you will see three sections: Forwarding, POP Download, and IMAP Access. With this said the steps straight from Google are as follows: On the second account (the one mail is to be pulled FROM): Click on the Gear icon in upper right corner. Click on ...

In Facebook, on top top-right, click on the icon representing a lock to open the Security menu. Go to "See More Settings". On the next page, go to "Apps" in the list on the left.

Do not change your password first. Go into the security settings Click the gear in the top right. Select Settings. Click the Accounts tab. In the "Grant access to your account" section, click delete on any account you want to remove. If you do have someone tagging along, when you change the password, they come with you. If you delete the "tag - along", ...

You don't have an explicit "OpenID credential". OpenID is a standard for authentication; the whole point of it is that you have an account from some provider, and they authenticate you for other sites. It's not that a Google account comes with some OpenID certificate; the Google account is the OpenID account.

If you're a Chrome user, there's an extension that automatically bypasses the splash called Straight to Google Analytics. It takes a second or so to redirect, but much better than clicking that Sign On link every time.

It's their splash screen, and annoyingly it has always been like that. Unfortunately there is no way to skip it without going directly to the /web. I'd suggest just bookmarking the link to http://www.google.com/analytics/web/, or if you use Chrome, type in the full URL (same as above) and eventually it'll learn to autocomplete to that instead of the splash ...

It is indeed true that Twitter can't send SMS in countries with a long code. Looks like there's an oversight in this system so that it's allowing SMS verification to be used even though it should require confirmation via incoming SMS. Twitter provides instructions at https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170409, but unfortunately those aren't of much use. ...

You can use Google Authenticator as well. The "set up another way.." option from Security settings in Facebook generates a QR code which can be imported into Authenticator

Using two-step authentication with the Google Authenticator app is kind of like using an RSA key or other security token for logging in. It adds an additional layer of security to your account, augmenting the "something you know" portion (password) with a "something you have" (cellphone) option as well. It is not required, but the use of this code makes it ...

When you first setup, you will have two codes: from SMS on your mobile (because you had to list your mobile to enable login security) from your code generator app (from the FB mobile app or a third party code generator) You will find that both these codes will work. Now we will disable login code being sent to sms (mobile). Next time you login to ...

I had a similar issue and instead of receiving texts, I switched over to the Google Authenticator App on my phone (also works with other services besides Google, like GitHub for example). You should keep the backup codes anyway—they come in handy if you don't have your phone with you, you lose it, or your battery dies etc.

Not exactly a hash, but every email has a unique ID. This value is accessible through the X-GM-MSGID email header. X-GM-MSGID: 1459153717434291429 This value, when converted to base-16, is 143ff493385c94e5, and with this we can directly link to said email: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/143ff493385c94e5.

Google set this as an default value and didn't provide any option to change this settings. BUt you can give this as a product feedback where they will change it based on the number of request

No, as per my knowledge no one can access email from twitter details, even you will not be able to access your email without knowing password of that particular email id.

The function ImportJSONBasicAuthentication is basically just a wrapper function for ImportJSONAdvanced but changes some options before calling it (the line with var fetchOptions initiliaztion call sets up options accordingly). You'd need to include the function ImportJSONAdvanced and any functions it might also call (dependancies). Notice the return value ...

Are they seriously saying they're going to follow people and post tweets using my account without my intervention? The scope of the authorization is that should you authorize, they can tweet, follow, and update your profile. Note that it's they can, not that they will.
