This is a good thing, both for ring specifically and for the industry in general. Ring now requires all accounts to activate two factor authentication.
2FA Means that just having the password isn’t enough to get you into the account. Instead, every time there is a new sign on attempt, a temporary code will be sent to the phone number or email (Account holders choice) associated with the master account holder, and that code will have to be entered as well as the password.
This greatly reduces the problem or someone who uses the same password on a bunch of different accounts has their password exposed on a hacker site.
So far, all of the news stories I have seen about malicious people getting hold of a ring camera account were this kind of intrusion. Not ring itself being hacked, but the person having their sign in credentials exposed in some way outside of ring.
This was announced earlier in the week, but now appears to be available for most customers.
(My apologies if I missed an existing thread on it, I searched and didn’t see anything)
