    Now tell me, how could I use two-step to log in my phone, where all my two-steps I have require my phone?
    This was my first thought exactly. Lol

    Guess we all need an old feature phone to be able to receive 2-factor sms codes.

    That one's easy! You send the message to your neighbors dog through the Internet of things and have it use an NFC tag on the collar to unlock the phone.

    THEN you split that password twice, so you need to round up the dog, a pet hamster. And a stray cat, all with NFC partial collars.

    For extra security mix in a fish.

    Security is about cost / benefit.

    You don't spend millions on a bank vault to protect 8 rolls of toilet paper you just bought right?

    I don't see the point of spending millions on a two factors authentication just to prevent someone from logging in to your account.

    There is nothing much they can access. They can't see your previous conversations, your contacts, your personal information.

    And as for BBM, it's associated to 1 PIN only so you'll know if your account is compromised.

    So again, security is about a good balance between cost and benefits. It's not about getting the best most secure protection and just basically creating an empty, unbreakable shell

    Which is the whole reason BlackBerry's business has collapsed....

    People bought BlackBerries, not really for the security.... but for the email. If you wanted "push" email and a device that could last all day way back then you needed a BlackBerry with BIS Service for individuals and BES or BESX for business. The security was for many, just a plus.

    But BlackBerry's business isn't built around email, it's built around security. And today, any device gives you instant email and good battery life - so for most the cost and benefits of a BlackBerry are just not there.

    As for a 2 Part Verification.... I don't really know how important that is. But yeah it pretty easy for anyone that knows you to have your email and know you have a BlackBerry. The question is how easy is it to figure out your password.... come to think of it, 2 Part Verification would be a good idea.
