Evernote planning to roll out 2 factor authentication

According to Information Week, Evernote is planning to quickly roll-out 2 factor security following the recent hacking attempt directed towards it.

…by adopting two-factor authentication, Evernote would join a growing list of online service providers that have done the same thing, including Amazon Web Services, Dropbox, Facebook, Google and Gmail, LastPass, Microsoft SkyDrive and Xbox Live, PayPal, Yahoo Mail, and a number of financial services websites.

In my post about the attempted hack, I wondered why Evernote does not already offer this feature, and suggested that 2 factor security be a threshold feature for any service you trust for personal, sensitive or confidential information.

I’m glad too see this development. I’ve personally already taken steps to remove my personal and sensitive data from online services that don’t have 2 factor security, including Evernote.
