Support two-factor/multi-factor authentication

Here's an idea to greatly improve Dwolla account security: support Yubikey, Google account login, Amazon login, or custom-implement a Time-based One-time Password Algorithm / TOTP / HOTP (RFC 6238).

I realize users now have a password and a PIN, but I'm not convinced the PIN adds much additional security above and beyond the password. Probably not as much as one of the standard multi-factor auth implementations, anyway.

I agree. I went searching the option and was surprised it wasn't there. A quick google search found this post. Usernames and password get comprosied all the time, and OTP provides greater protection against fraud.

Very surprised that this feature doesn't exist. Unlikely I'll put any money into Dwolla without it
