16 Jul How to perform 2FA without SMS or Email | TypingDNA Verify
Aaron , Pittsburgh Pa Jesben.com – Worst – I can express what a disaster this company is. Just spent the whole day trying to get site back up. #Justhost customer service continually lied and told me it would be up in 5 hours. Already paying for malware removal and then they talked me into paying an extra $500. It only made things worse. Spoke with guy named Nicholas – rude, uncooperative, arrogant, and was unable to help. Told me to call back to talk to another company. This guy is a level 2 tech!! Earlier tech didn’t help either. No follow thru. Company is in cahoots with Sitelock, another deceptive thieving organization that does nothing to help situation. BEWARE!!!STAY FAR AWAY FROM BOTH ORGANIZATIONS!!

Passwords are so 1990’s, and I’m sick and tired of the millions of times I’ve had to check my phone over the last 20 years to log into pretty much everything.
– Want to check your email, SMS login…
– Want to see your bitcoin, SMS login…
– Want to log into your bank, SMS login…
Want to write the script for this video on notion… SMS login
Surely there should be a better way to authenticate because if I have to check and write in more more SMS authentication code, I seriously might lose it!
So I went on a hunt to google what options there are out there. There were things like Google Authenticator, which uses a special QR code with timeouts… but these don’t really solve the problem of always having to keep my phone at hand. There were options like using geolocation checks, ip identification, but all of these still weren’t that great.
I did some more research and digging and found that even…
…Microsoft themselves have warned that you should stop using telephone based MFA methods, with SMS and Voice call verification being some of the least secure MFA methods available today.
And so here I am, and after lots of digging, I admit to almost giving up, but then I was surprised to come across TypingDNA. They took an entirely different approach to the authentication game and not only is it one without having to check SMS’s everyday, but it’s one that I think could replace the whole authentication model as a whole.
I reached out to them and they were kind enough to both give me a preview of what they do, and sponsor this video.
So what makes them special, well, let me explain it in a single sentence.
“They authenticate you based on how you type. That’s it.”
This means the next time I go to login, instead of having to send out an additional SMS to check who I am, I simply continue to type, and the Verify system will do this automatically using some sort of magic, or machine learning, or some sophisticated patented software which doesn’t really matter to me as long as it works!
Why on earth does this matter you might think, well so many reasons!
First, UX. As I mentioned, I personally am pretty sick of SMS checks to login, and this process effectively means you don’t have to leave the keyboard. It’s a set up unlike any other solution out there, including QR code authentication apps.
Secondly, from a business point of view, not having to send SMS’s saves money. Who want’s to spend god knows how much to send thousands of SMS’s to hundreds of people every single day (depending on how big your startup is obviously).
Enough talking, let’s see what this actually looks like, and why I find it so interesting!
