Google Authenticator, in Your Web Browser
« on: February 27, 2016, 03:10:27 am »

In anticipation of version 2.1 of the SMF forum software that we use, which supports Two-Factor Authentication, I have written, in a single JavaScript-heavy web page, a near-clone of the Google Authenticator smart phone app. This allows you to enter one or more secret keys for two-factor authentication, and get the time-varying passwords you need to log in.

It should work with any web site for which Google Authenticator works, assuming your computer's time is properly synchronized, which most modern computer's are.

Thanks for the kind words, Gooch.  Sorry I haven't been posting very often -- I'm getting too lazy and grumpy to do the reasearch.
