Since this app has everything to do with finance, I believe the use of multi-factor authentication is a must, please prioritize to help protect financial info, thanks!

    Agreed. MFA is a must. Security minded folks would also want to ensure that data at rest on Quicken servers is also fully encrypted and not accessible to Quicken employees or contracted agents.

    Still as an end user, I need to be challenged to be able to log into my own account.

    That would definitely be a nice option to have in the app as an extra security layer, probably something you can turn on/off if needed!

    @TGP that's a great suggestion!

  • Coach Paco, regarding the multi-factor authentication on the "mobile app", I am having a problem. I am using the android app on a motorola g6 phone. I receive pop up that my bank needs to confirm my identity and gives me the option to email or text the verification. when I chose one or the other and press the VERIFY button, I received the code from my bank, but the app does not allow me to input the code. I have to go to my browser on my computer to update my account. Thanks Tim

    @[email protected] I appreciate you bring that to our attention. I'm going to test this out so I can get this submitted for us!

    New here, so please forgive if this is the wrong place for this. I've been playing with the product for a couple of weeks now. Really nice and look forward to seeing it evolve. But the lack of 2FA is problematic. If nothing else, in 2020 a finance web site, even one that is 'view only', really has to support 2FA. It gives just that much more confidence to add in all my accounts. Keep in mind that some fraud begins with learning who to target. Even just being able to see this data could put someone at risk. 2FA really needs to be something added sooner versus later.

    @simplij This is certainly the right place for your comment. Several of our early users have requested better multifactor authentication functions in Simplifi, beyond the ones that are offered when you're first setting up an account. So far, the majority have asked for the ability to turn MFA on or off for individual accounts. There are currently administrative options to enable 2FA for an individual user, but since it turns it on for all functions, including login, and can't be turned off by the user, our support team is looking for ways to make it more selective. When we hear back from them, we'll post an update here to let you know how we plan to handle this. Thanks for your suggestion!

    As we read over and over, SMS based 2FA is ‘lacking’. I’d really like to see OTP support! Thanks!

    I agree. My personal preference would be a toggle that would set an individual account to always request a one-time passcode via text on login, or turn that option off if I'm okay with just username and password authentication. We appreciate your comments.

    Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing, I'm referring to logging in to Simplifi, and not about specific linked accounts.

  • Coach Tappan

    @simplij I understand. You'd like to exchange an OTP with Simplifi every time you log, in for extra security. I know this is important to a lot of users, and we definitely want to find the best way to make that option available to you.

  • I agree, this is definitely important. Not only SMS MFA but OTP using apps like Google Authenticator or Authy would be great.

    Exactly!

    As it uses Quicken / Intuit's login, I'm surprised it doesnt also incorporate their 2FA.

  • this is actually ridiculous. Mint, Clarity (by Marcus), YNAB, etc. all have it.

    Has any progress been made on this? I can not believe that we actually have to ask for this security feature.

    Hi all,

    We appreciate your feedback and patience while we work to get this feature enabled. At this time, we don't have an ETA. However, as soon as we have any new updates, we'll be sure to post on this thread.

    Thank you! -- Coach Nicole

    Hello All,

    Great news! We are currently working to implement this into Simplifi, although I do not have an ETA at this time. :smile:

  • Would be great to up the security since there is financial data & personal data for that matter (where someone shops, where they eat all the time, etc).
    Would suggest at the very least needing text codes. But also if people want to activate other levels of security, then using things like the yubikey and authenticator apps

    I noticed it's been several months since there's been an update here about two-factor authentication. This is a primary concern for myself as well. At the very least, logging into the website version of Simplifi should have two-factor authentication via SMS texting. As much as I like Simplifi, it's worrisome to think it could be used as a roadmap for my financial data. Our Quicken accounts already have our phone numbers for SMS texting so it would seem this should have been available from launch.
