Problem: I want to protect my Ting number from being taken over by a Bad Person.
Solution: Ting offers 2-factor authentication via email or app. Someone trying to change account details would need access to either my email or my Ting website account.
Problem: Sometimes email or phone isn't available, or the Bad Person may have already gotten into my email. Other apps like my bank only support 2-factor authentication via text message, so I really, really need my Ting number to be safe and protected. I need 2-factor authentication that doesn't rely on something that could be compromised, like my email or my Ting website password.
Solution: Ting adds support for the Universal 2-Factor (U2F) standard, as implemented by devices like Yubikey. This way, I can log on to my Ting account only when I enter my Ting account password and have my hardware-based U2F key in hand.
Thank you Ting!
