Two factor authentication?

Thread needs solution

Hello,

cloud backup is a very sensitive application regarding security.

Therefore it would be more secure if it had a two-factor authentication.

Preferrably by TOTP (Google Authenticator or similar).

Is this a planned feature?

Hi,

two-factor authentication is in our to-do list (but no ETA to share so far)

I'm very concerned about security, and am surprised that you still appear not to offer Two-Factor Authentication.

Please update us about when you will add that important feature.

Hello Mark,

please specify the name of Acronis product you are referring to, so that we can advise. Are you using Acronis Backup 12.5 (a business product) or Acronis True Image 2018 (a home product)? Both product families have different roadmaps and feature sets. 

Thank you,

Hi Ekaterina:

I'm using Acronis True Image 2018, the home product.

I'd sure like to have Acronis offer Two-Factor Authentication to help secure my data.

Hello TechSavvyy,

According to the information in our internal source the feature is expected to be implemented in Acronis Backup platform by the end of the year, but this might be subject to change. I've added comment as a vote for the feature request. 

For Acronis True Image the feature is not on the roadmap yet. 

Thank you!

Are there any Updates on this topic? 
Two Factor authentication should be a must for the Cloud login.

I want to use the Acronis Cloud Backup from Acronis True Image 2019.

Thank you for clarification, Tobias! Currently, the feature is planned for Acronis Backup Cloud only. I've added your comment as a vote to the existing feature request in Acronis True Image project.

I'm using Acronis True Image 2019 and am utilizing Acronis Cloud as a backup destination. When can I expect MFA to be available? I will not renew my subscription without it, so hopefully we'll see it soon as I otherwise like the product very much.
