    Wonderful stuff! Useful for online game accounts as well!
  • by Carlos 11/24/2014
    Useless... What's the secret key to register an account? How do I get one? Where is the setting to create one?
  • by Seon 11/24/2014
    Yes it works, but the Microsoft account app on Android is so much better. They really need to step it up on windows phone and make their apps feature rich and easier to use on their own platform

    Please, add transparent tile and icons, example: Facebook icon, Microsoft Account icon and others.

    Killer nice! Sure, not everybody uses the same algorithm, and Google MS, dropbox, etc use this. Google is making it hard for Redmond & it's clients, so I'm stepping back from Google. To get this to work with Gmail (or anything Google, lie and say it's an Android. Shoot the QR code or type in the code to replace the password, on the WP.. In operation, password then the generated code, no need. For a SMS connection. Slightly stronger than SMS for a 2nd challenge because it is with you and cannot be 're-directed' via hack, snoop or man in the middle attack. Also always available, keep time sync on or risk failure and need to have voice or SMS working, in real time.
