How to manage two-factor authentication on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac with Authy

Passwords are weak and often cracked. Two-factor authentication, which uses your phone number to send a secondary code you have to enter, is much stronger.

Here are some of the tips I use to make sure I get good photos and videos of practices and games; whether you're shooting roller skating or another sport, hopefully they can help you out, too.
