Hi Webroot,

For nearly 4 years you've been saying that 2FA is in the works, but it still hasn't been implemented (The security code isn't 2FA, it's just a second password).

Have you released a timeline where your customers can expect to have 2FA security available?

There is considerable engineering effort going into this at present and it is the highest priority for a number of teams.

I'm not in a position to make product announcements or speculate on timelines but there is a lot of work being done on this as we speak.

I'm no web dev, but I feel reasonably confident I could implement MFA on a Wordpress site in an afternoon, weekend tops. Lots of good well-vetted open-source code out there, and large sophisticated vendors who'll help you plug something in to your existing authentication framework. Just sayin.
