Reddit has finally joined other major web properties in adding two-factor authentication for all users.
It’s been available for mods and some testers for a while, but this is the first time the vast multitudes of redditors will have access to it.
Turn it on and you’ll have to enter a six-digit code sent to your phone whenever you have a new login attempt.
You’ll need Google Authenticator, Authy, or any TOTP-supporting auth app — texting codes is no longer recommended (and really, it was always a bad idea).
There’s not much to setting it up: go into the password/email area of the site’s preferences once you’ve logged in on a desktop browser.
Enable two-factor authentication and follow the instructions.
