Is not a good idea if you're working in a basement with no mobile phone signal

Started a new job on Monday, working for a social housing authority near Kings Cross.

By SMS, also great if you're connecting over WiFi because there's no mobile signal in your holiday cottage.

Should be using TOTP anyway, not SMS. Much more convenient.

When I'm in the SCIF by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #3 Tue Dec 04, 2018 at 01:29:01 PM EST
I can't have a mobile phone, or a 2fa usb thingy. Kind of freeing, actually.

I go out to my phone, try repeating the 7 digit 2fa code, only to get tripped up entering my door pin

and a woman who doesn't seem to grok that tying that account to her cell phone means I can't log into it no matter how many times she tells me the password.
