Last week we covered how Google was making 2 factor authentication mandatory on Nest accounts and now Amazon are following suit with Ring.

Until now, enabling the two-factor authentication in Ring devices was optional, however, following several recent reports of hackers gaining access to people’s internet-connected Ring doorbell and security cameras, Amazon yesterday announced to make two-factor authentication security feature mandatory for all Ring users.

Every time you login after entering the account’s username and password, every user needs to input a secret six-digit authentication code sent to them via their phone or email.
