It was about time: Amazon introduces Two Factor Authentication

20 November 2015

Just in time for the Christmas sale Amazon introduced Two Factor Authentication (TFA) this week. Set up is as easy as for Navigate to the Advanced Security Settings page, choose Authenticator App, Scan the bar code and Verify the Code.

Except if you are a customer from Amazon in Germany. The Advanced Security Settings page is not on available on The same holds for Amazon seems to stagger the roll out, with focus on the US market because the Christmas sale starts earlier there.

Hopefully Amazon rolls out TFA in the next days also in Germany. Otherwise there will be no Christmas presents for the kids this year…

Have a good weekend.
