Two-Factor Authentication: Google Prompt and FIDO Keys
Two-factor authentication is extremely important for securing one’s online accounts. Google has been pushing two-factor authentication to its users for the last several years, recently making the interactive Google Prompt a default secondary authentication method.
Elcomsoft Cloud Explorer 2.0 now supports Google Prompt, Google’s newest and most commonly used secondary authentication technique, and adds support for exotic but highly secure FIDO Keys based authentication, including support for all types of Yubico keys.
