Zapier is one of my favorite online services. It allows me to set up simple automation tasks between various cloud services like Gmail, Dropbox, and OneDrive. Today, Zapier sent me an email asking if I was trying to reset my password. Not good. Looks like someone is trying to hack my account.

While I was resetting my password (just in case…), I noticed Zapier now supports Two Factor Authentication (2FA). As you know, we’re always talking about how important it is to enable Two Factor auth. online. So, with this in mind, follow along as I enable it to my Zapier account
