Sometimes I read stories that really make me think (and worry). For those who have great domains under management, you might feel super-safe by usingtwo factor authentications”, where your mobile device is used to verify each login you make to your registry account by sending you a text message for confirmation.

I’ve often thought how horrible it might be if someone got control of my mobile device and was able to use it to verify an account change such as a password update or confirmation for logging in. The same goes for your bank accounts. What if someone could somehow intercept your text messages?
