It's a step in the right direction and it never should've taken this long to get it

Edit: 2 step verification is a standard security feature for most major services and I think it's justified to say they should've implemented this quicker, feel free to disagree

It's a trap for hose who try to hack

Probably but 2 step verification is a standard security feature for most major services and I think it's justified to say they should've implemented this quicker, feel free to disagree

I use quite a few major services, banking or otherwise, and can't think of any that use a 2 step verification. Some have it as optional, but most just require a U/N and password. I know quite a few I use have SMS verification for when you forget a password or something like that though.

That's good to hear, the more features the better, especially security features.

Oh come on Sony... really? SMS based? Why can't I use Google Authenticator?

badz1491212d ago

because if they use that they have to pay Google? no?

DarkZane1212d ago

Wow, SMS only? Kind of a waste for people who don't have mobile devices. Sending an email with a code or having an authenticatior app on older ios and android devices like some gaming companies does would have also been better.

Also, better an option where you can check: Never ask again on this device, I'd hate to enter a code everytime I turn my PS4 on.

in this day and age who tf doesn't have a mobile device.

rainslacker1211d ago

So, waste for people who don't have mobile devices, but having an authenticator on an old mobile device is OK?

Once can get a free SMS number if they really need it. You won't need a code every time you turn on your PSN, likely just for making purchases, kind of like how it is now when it asks for your password when making a purchase if you choose that extra bit of security for store use.
