Dropbox adds u2f support … if you connect to it via Chrome. Using FIDO U2F. Easy with Plug-Up foldable key.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/21

I like this: the plug-up affordable FIDO U2F Security Key by  HAPPLINK.

You could already use it for Google 2nd factor authentication (2FA) through Chrome. You can do this from your own applications for instance through the U2F reference implementation.

Now you can also as 2FA to DropBox, also through Chrome. And it is easy with the plug-up key (Thanks Kristian):

Uuuund… umgestellt. Das war ja einfach.

Es gibt andere Fido Token, die können mehr. Ich nehme dieses, das kostet fast nix und man kann die kaufen und verteilen wie Konfetti.

Add a Security Key to your Google Account: FIDO U2F Security Key

I just added a FIDO U2F Security Key | Yubico as a FIDO second factor to my Google Account: Add a Security Key to your Google Account – Accounts Help.

The cool thing: if you don’t have your FIDO U2F key with you, you can fall back to Google two step verification mechanisms like Authenticator, SMS/Phone or pre-generated backup security codes.

Google 2 factor authorization: “The code you entered didn’t verify. Learn more Tip: codes are time-dependent…”

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/01/18

Not sure what went wrong, but I could not use 2 factor authentication, but somehow the codes generated by the Google Authenticator didn’t work at all. When entering the codes, I got this message:

“The code you entered didn’t verify. Learn more Tip: codes are time-dependent. Make sure your phone is set to the correct local time.”

Of course both devices were having the same time, were in the same time zone, etc.

The “codes are time-dependent” – Google Search got me on the right track.

The fix was the second steps from this article (I updated the steps as some of the UI changed): Read the rest of this entry »
