Hi, I have a suggestion that should increase security for Air and customers. My suggestion is for Air to configure an optional system of multifactor/two-factor authentication for logging in to the AirVPN website, as well as for the initial setup of the Eddie software (entering login details). This can be enabled or disabled by the user and accomplished by either: a smartphone app such as FreeOTP (which is open source and available for iOS/Android).a hardware device such as Nitrokey (which is open hardware) or a similar USB one time password generator (Yubikey, etc.) The user will be prompted on their phone or mobile device with a number to enter in additionally to their password. This makes sure nobody but the authorized user has access to the account, profile, etc. Air would probably be the first VPN provider to have this as an option. Regards, anonym
Security of AirVPN account
freeplatypus posted a topic in General & SuggestionsHi all, First of congratulations on great product. It beats all other VPN providers in user review! I have one issue though. This seems to pertinent to all VPN providers out there. How does one secure access to VPN account? OpenVPN and connections are encrypted and all the cryptographic goodies are there but security of access to account itself is fairly limited. Someone can still/guess/keylog credentials and get access to account - and therefore connect under my credentials to the Internet, and cause (even legal) havoc. Why is there not added security in this space? 2FA authentication seems no brainer these days but no one seems to offer it. VyprVPN is really bad with this, the offer encrypted storage with their service but once your credentials are compromised all goes down the drain. Cheers all!
