    As @Hemmers mentioned, Authy is an alternative to Google Authenticator, and it also supports multiple devices including iOS, Android and any desktop which runs Google Chrome web browser. I currently use Google Authenticator but the point is, there are many options out there for you to choose from.

    If you're wanting to have the 2FA setup on multiple devices, don't use the QR code on screen. Instead, you'll need to take a note of the number (seed) which the server generates and manually setup a new 'account' within the Auth app on each device. Been a while since I coded in COBOL too

    Cool. (Though COBOL is more my era.) I just have to work out how the same personalised version of the Google Authenticator algorithm gets onto both my phones and my macbook. I guess my Google account controls that.

    OK, so if you're formerly from the IT industry, then I can talk technical. A server, in this case my server, will give you seed data which you enter into the mobile app on your phone's Authentication app. There are two common algorightms used for then generating a unique code. Both your device and my server have to use the same algorithm (HOTP or TOTP - both open standards) so that the server will be able to take the seed data, apply the alogorith at the time you submit your data and check if what you've supplied matches what it has calculated. i.e. your device can be offline, as the generation of your code is done purely by a mathematical alogrithm, and only your device + server know the 'seed' Many sense?

    Can someone explain how a standalone app like Google Authenticator which doesnt need a signal can generate a code acceptable by the forum and identifiable to me? How does it know it's me holding the phone? Not rhetorical, I just dont know. I use a combination of Macbook with Airmail email client, five email accounts on Google mail and Outlook mail, and two android phones with Aquamail email client. Once started on the 2FA path the complexity (even for this retired IT person) and the danger of being locked out somewhere along the line are too great to contemplate at this time. All my mail accounts have single password entry since all the problems with the interim solution before 2FA. Even if I activated it for this forum, the guy I bought from has my home address data in his PM and I can't protect that from my end. He would need to 2FA too. Not sure how GDRP protects me either. I can't ask you to delete his PMs. I prefer to stay relatively anonymous and use false personal data in forum profiles where possible ie be street smart. I will now review how I communicate with sellers for next time.

    Hi Peter Regarding your question of accessing the forum when on holiday, if you use your phone as the "One Time Password" generator using Google Authenticator, Authy, LastPass Authenticator (the list of options goes on....) then you would: Go to the local library Browse to https://forum.stirton.com Login with your normal username and password Using your mobile, open the authenticator app and when asked by the forum, enter the 6 digit number that shows on your screen. You're logged in

    Ever messaged someone your bank details while selling something on here? That data. Ever sent someone your address when buying? That data. Ever used your name when arranging to meet someone at Bisley in a PM? That data. It's easier than you think to steal valuable data via online profiles.

    Lapua Centre - X batch

    I tried to get some of the batch that suited my rifle as I had used the 5000 that I purchased. I tried the shop at Bisley where they came from, but alas they have sold out. Worth giving them a try? Happy Hunting

    Im still struggling to see what data is at risk. Apart from my email address and a photo of Victor Meldrew. How would I access the forum from the local library PC on holiday?

    The Open Rights Group have a handy tool for checking if sites are on an ISP block list. You can also send unblocking/reclassification requests with it. I've had some success getting some sites off (WTSF and WSRA) with Vodafone and Sky being relatively responsive. At the very least you can normally get it off the "regular" lists but they'll dig their heels in on the "Kidsafe" or "Strict" filters. It can also be a bit whack-a-mole because getting a site off the black-list doesn't necessarily get it white-listed, it just goes "neutral" - since they often use third party lists, sites can end up getting added back on.

    You can use any TOTP-compatible app - I use Authy in preference to Google's app. Not that it matters - as Neil says it doesn't store anything on you, it's just generating a one-time password. I'll be blunt here. If 2FA is on offer somewhere USE IT. The benefits cannot be overstated.

    I'll try to find out which data feed they use - this is the easiest way to go about that. UPDATE: Symantec classification - Forums and Messageboards, English, Hobby, English Bluecoat (now Symantec WebPulse) classification - Sports/Recreation, Newsgroups/Forums

    Probably not even that long, especially when you live in Authenticator apps all day, every day, for connecting to your various clients to support their environments Doing work for the banks has some of the strictest controls in place with needing to be on a VPN which uses 2FA to connect, requires device certificates on approved hardware only and then complex passwords to boot.... Data ex-filtration is their worst nightmare, and you only have to look at the Spanish company who bought TSB and the 'joys' they've been experiencing the past couple of weeks post migration work gone wrong!

    Hi Peter, I have to chuckle slightly in the irony in the other thread whereby there's all this discussion about GDPR and here you are saying " Making it even more difficult and you will continue to have sub forums that have not been posted in for many years." One of the key objectives behind GDPR is security of PII, and that includes but is not limited to "encryption in transit", "encryption at rest" and the security mechanisms in place for users accessing said information. The whole point of offering 2FA is to safeguard our users because let's face it, we all know someone who uses weak passwords and never changes them and therefore they are a prime target to have their account compromised. By enforcing 2FA, even if a member has a weak password then it is fairly useless to a hacker how obtains said password unless they also physically manage to get hold of the members' mobile/authentication device. I'm afraid that I need to protect the overall membership data, and myself, with the looming GDPR regulations coming into effect in 2 weeks on Friday, even if that means some unhappy campers ... you can thank the EU for these additional security measures which some may see as headaches

    I tried contacting Talk Talk but they said that each customer would need to contact them and request to have the Home "Security" feature disabled to get around it .. they did not seem interested in listening about reclassification.

    Lapua Centre - X batch

    Hi, yes your total correct I was over the moon thinking someone had some of this batch left in excess. I did clear them out when I tested which was a year ago, so it was a bit of a long shot really just hoping. 12mm groups edge to edge as well and still performing well.
