Our 2FA mobile app is now live! PasswordWrench listened to our customers who have been requesting a smartphone Two-Factor Authorization mobile application. For the past several months we have been busy building & testing one of the most secure 2FA application in the industry. We just launched the Android version, and shortly we will release the iOS version as well.
The PasswordWrench 2FA mobile app resolves many existing security issues in the 2FA/MFA market. Working hard to address these issues while making an app that’s user friendly and secure were our top priorities.
First, this 2FA mobile app is easy to use, a factor that is important to us as well as to our customers. The time it takes to set-up the app is down to one click. Our 2FA technologies are built around a downloadable/printable Password Card that works similar to a bingo game, and with this new mobile app, you don’t even need to download the Password Card anymore. A unique Password Card is generated for every login. Simply find and plug-in the coordinates – anyone can do it.
Next, we bring more security than existing TOTP applications, as we resolve the vulnerability that TOTP apps have during the set-up process. Hackers can easily grab screenshots of the keys or the QR Code shown on the screen when you are using a TOTP app, and if they do, all PINs generated from that app are easily replicable on the hacker’s side. With the ubiquitous use of cameras everywhere, this problem is becoming a more prevalent concern in the cyber security community. We have eliminated this threat.
Our solution also checks for potential phishing and middle-man attacks during the second-step login validation, something that no TOTP app does. We synch our validation with the server, validating our 2FA PIN using our provided API, which is of course seamless to the user.
And finally, our app resolves issues related to the clock from the smartphone that requires proper synchronization properly from all TOTP apps. Sometimes, when generating a PIN from a TOTP app, the PIN will fail, even when valid, due to the clock on the device be off by few seconds. Our app fixes this issue as well.
If we hear about any other issues or problems that the industry and businesses are facing, be sure, we will be on those as well.

Everyone knows by now that SMS is not a secure way to do 2-Factor Authentication, as your phone number can be hijacked, and sending a plain text PIN across 2 different networks increase the risk of interceptions. Many banks resolved those issues by providing an electronic device that generates a PIN. This alternative brings its own issues though. For example if you are traveling somewhere and forget your PIN generator, or lose it, you could be stranded for many days. And it’s not going to be cheap to replace it since they cost money to produce and take a while to ship. Many companies do not want to deal with such sensitive inventory management either. There are also many solutions based on biometrics and artificial intelligence which provide simplicity but with a huge negative; if compromised, they cannot be replaced and forcing you to use an alternative. We’ve seen some big company come out with free mobile application to help you with your 2FA but their goal is to track you down in order to stick Ads in your face. They don’t care about your privacy.
