My suggestion for Passpack is ...

Two factor authentication with Google Authenticator.

A lot of security-conscious users already use Google Authenticator with their Google accounts. It seems like a no-brainer to include in the two-factor authentication options (or at least to use as a backup).

        Adding my upvote for this feature. Many exchanges use Google Authenticator already.

        If there is a security reason not to use it, please let us know!

        Even Microsoft now allows Google based authenticator and they have an app in Microsoft app store as well. Please allow 2FA using Google based authenticator

        I'd like this. Yubikey won't work with iOS devices.

        Using Google Authenticator with dropbox already. Would be great to allow 2-factor authentication with Google Authenticator as an alternative to yubi key.

        Any one of the following: Google Authenticator, Symantec's VIP Access (second factor generated on a mobile phone app) or SMS verification would all be a big improvement as the second factor! I like that Passpack offers the Yubikey, but I don't want more hardware to manage.

        It is better to replace the packing key with SMS verification. Less things to remember for the user.

        It would be great to have Google Authenticator App for 2-factor-authentication of passpack. Google Authenticator App works e.g. with Dropbox or Synology DSM logins. It would help to replace yubikey and having only one tool :-)

        Suggesting to use google authenticator as a cheap replacement for yubikey.

        In my eyes this is already possible. If you only use your Google-Account with two factor authentication to login using unsafe computers. This way a key/screen-logger could not aquire all necessary information to login at your passpack-account.
        Or do you suggest to add the possiblity to use the google Authenticator App as a cheap replacement for a yubikey?
