2FA for Goodbudget Accounts?

All,
with all the security issues in the media, especially regarding sensitive accounts, many companies are implementing Two Factor Authentication (2FA), to provide an extra layer of security for their accounts, beyond just a password. The best sites incorporate a one-time passcode (OTP) via Google Authenticator or Authy, that protects the account with a one-time passcode that changes every 30 seconds. At minimum, I'd like to see SMS-authenticated 2FA, although that is a much more insecure means of authenticating and protetcing uses than TOP methods. 

Any thoughts on giving your customers the option? Strong passwords are important, but as we've seen countless times, if the passwords are hacked or lifted from the company, it doesn't matter how complex the passwords are.

I see your concern. That’s why I’ve been with GoodBudget as long as I have. As far as I know, anyone who hacks my account would only see numbers. There are no bank account numbers entered or kept in the data. GoodBudget please correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, there aren't account numbers from checking, saving, nor credit cards as part of the system. However, it's still personal, private information, showing everywhere I spent my money, with what vendors, dates of purchase, and perhaps personal information in the notes pages that is nobody's business. So it's beyond saying "well, there's nothing too personal so no big deal". I think the surveillance economy what it is these days, coupled with the frequency of data theft, makes 2FA essential for any service that deals in any kind of financial information.
