Feature Friday: Password Reminder Popup

I use the Authy mobile app to serve up my 2-factor tokens when I need them. I’ve blogged about Authy before here at AVC so regular readers will be familiar with it.

Authy does something that I really like. Even though my password is stored on my mobile phone and I don’t need to type it in every time I log in, Authy regularly prompts me for my password so that I don’t forget it. The popup box has an “ignore” link on it that I can click if I don’t want to be bothered. But I type my password in every time I’m prompted to do this because I realize that regularly typing in my password is the best way to insure I don’t forget it.

It’s one of those things that makes so much sense and makes you wonder why more apps don’t do this.

Well done Authy.
