Backblaze unterstützt nun auch die 2FA via App

Bislang konnte man die Zwei-Faktor-Authentifizierung für den Login bei Backblaze nur über SMS durchführen. Nun hat Backblaze die 2FA mittels Applikation ermöglicht.

All Backblaze backups occur over HTTPS, are encrypted, and we even have private encryption key functionality available for those who wish to add another layer of protection. In 2015, we added two-factor verification (“2FV”) via SMS to our service, which allowed customers to use a mobile device to verify that they were indeed the ones accessing their Backblaze accounts. Today we are announcing our latest step in helping customers protect their Backblaze accounts – two factor verification via authenticator applications like Google Authenticator and Authy. To enable that, we now support the “ToTP” protocol.


Backblaze ist, das nur nebenbei, Teil meiner Strategie für sichere Backups unter Mac OS X.
