    I think adding third party companies like Google shouldn't be an issue, but other authentication apps could be used for Two-Factor Authentication on the Minecraft Feedback Website.

    This would be greatly helpful to avoid people compromising accounts when it happens so often.

    There should also be backup codes (printable), if you lose your 2 factor device.

    My acc just got compromised. Was able to retake it and change the password but lost my display name.
    C'mon guy. Not an argument I know but it is 2018. 2FA is easier than never before and risks are higher than ever as well.

    How has this still not been implemented after almost 10 years of the game? It is crucial to keep my stuff safe!

    I sure do support the idea, however a long enough password is literally unbreakable, so I think players should give more attention to their online security.

    But yeah, sure, adding two step authentication is a good idea, at least as an option for the player.

    it's 2019 now, it's 100% unacceptable for sites with private information to not have 2 factor authentication

    2FA is an added layer of security that makes it that much more difficult to crack accounts. I REALLY think this should at least be an optional feature that is implemented by Mojang. There can be multiple people with access to passwords/session ID's, but only one person with access to an authorized 2FA device (hopefully the user)

    As someone that had their account messed with as well, I agree that this should be an option. It should be, however, a 2FA system that works by SMS and any 2FA app, by providing the user with the key.
    If they implement it, they can continue telling players that they were responsible for their security.. It is important to be offered a wide range of accessible features for security purposes. Hate to say it, but even Google/Facebook have better security, even though they are not known for privacy.

    Still no 2fa they should be ashamed yes i agree you should't give your email or login but these things can leak we should atleast be given 2fa options for these days its the standard, having unique password to but its not possible to have unique e-mail adress for everything sometimes they leak and only takes sometime to brute force it once password is not changed

    Now that Minecraft is a Microsoft software, you can even use Microsoft's authenticator. I'm guessing that Microsoft have all the code for you to use already. This should be a easy fix for the Minecraft team. Or maby just make it possible to log in with our Microsoft account since it already has 2FA as a security option.

    I would really love 2FA, preferably via a phone number or an app such as Google Authenticator, but email is good as well. I would also like an option in account settings where you have to log in each time you open Minecraft (like forced so even if you tick, say, "Stay Logged In", it will still log you out when you close the window). I don't care if it's troublesome as long as it means my account is secure. And if it's an option in account settings then people should be able to turn it on/off, anyway. But, if that's not possible, please at least 2FA. It's crazy that MC does not have it yet! Need it for the Java version!

    These just feels like a feature that should have been in years ago
