Phone-based two-factor authentication for LogMeIn

Posted by onlydarksets on October 27, 2008

I haven’t setup LogMeIn because I’m skittish about security.  PhoneFactor looks like a promising addition to the chain that could alleviate my concerns.  It provides a second-factor authentication (the first being your username/password) by requiring you to answer your phone before it lets you in.  If you (or, more likely, a would-be hacker) don’t have the phone, you can’t get in.
