Is anyone other than PG aggravated by websites that require multi-factor authentication these days?
PG’s least favorite is Google, which makes PG enter his ID and Password, then insists that he pick up his cell phone, load Gmail and tap another button, except when Google requires that PG tap another button, then choose one of three numbers that he has to use his cell phone yet again.
Google offers a checkbox that is supposed to allow PG to opt out of the extra authentication process, but, although PG has checked that box many times, he’s still not opted out.
Then, of course, there are the times when PG wants to quickly check something, but has left his phone in another room on another floor of Casa PG.
PG has used long random passwords for years and none of his accounts has ever been successfully hacked via guessing his password.
FYI, he’s not a fan of various authenticator applets either. They never seem to work right the first time.
PG moved into adulthood centuries ago and has been actively using computers for longer than many Google programmers have been alive, so he demands the right to opt-out of these sorts of “improvements” in his user experience.
