GitHub requires 2FA; here is an easy way to keep OTP

Recently, GitHub announced that all users will be required to enable two-factor authentication (2FA) by the end of 2023.


As GitHub's chief security officer Mike Hanley said, the software supply chain starts with the developer, and protecting developer accounts helps secure the supply chain.

With 2FA enabled, when logging in to your GitHub account, you have to enter your password as well as providing other factors like OTP. It can help prevent your accounts from being stolen due to password leakage.

Enable 2FA

So here's a question, how to turn on 2FA for GitHub?

It's a piece of cake. ID Guard Offline app can help.

1. Open the 2FA settings page
2. Set up 2FA using the app

That's all. Your GitHub password and OTP are well protected by ID Guard Offline.

You can also save more account security information like recovery codes together!

BTW, ID Guard Offline supports backing up and restoring all data, including OTP.

Does that convenience lead to security threats?

Of course NOT. Safety always comes first.

Every time you use Autofill, you must authenticate with your biometric or master password to unlock the app.

Even if you temporarily lend your phone to someone else, you don't have to worry about them abusing Autofill to sign in and spy on your accounts.


After you scan the QR code to confirm filling, your password, OTP, and so on will be encrypted on your mobile app first, then sent to the cloud server via a mobile browser, and finally arrive at the extension to be decrypted and filled in.

Data remains encrypted throughout transmission. Neither hackers nor our employees can peek at your data.
