Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) has become an integral part of the modern day security model - by supplementing traditional passwords with a second factor (phone, email, etc.), attackers are much less likely to be able to access your internet accounts. At Operand, we wanted to make it easier for our users to use 2FA, without compromising security of your other internet accounts.

We still have a lot of work to do on our own security model, and we look forward to hearing feedback from our community on this, and what steps should be taken to improve it.



To add a new 2FA link, simply ask Operand to 'add a 2fa link'. The assistant will prompt you to give the link a name (so you can reference this later), as well as to enter the 2FA link code given to you by the individual service provider. This will be a sequence of letters and numbers, but you might have to click a 'see more' button to find it.

To see existing 2FA links, just say '2fa'. You can also specify a search string, for example, '2fa gmail' will only show links with the word 'gmail' in the name. Operand will print out all the current 2FA codes for each name. These codes can be used for logging into configured internet services.
