We recently reported that Evernote recently suffered a security breach in which the hackers were able to access the login credentials of its users. The company was quick to respond to this by resetting the passwords of all the users and now, it has expressed the intent of implementing two-step authentication soon.

Two-step authentication is currently held to be a very secure security solution and is usually used to complement the conventional password-based security. In two-step authentication, the users are sent a brief code to their handsets. After entering the password, they are required to enter the code and only then, are allowed to log into their accounts.

According to an Evernote spokesperson, the company had been considering implementing the security measure for quite some time now. Speaking to InformationWeek, the spokesperson stated, “We were already planning to roll out optional two-factor authentication to all of our users later this year. We are accelerating those plans now.”

Apparently, the ‘acceleration’ in carrying out the plan has been due to the recent security breach of the company’s systems. Although Evernote assured in an official blog post that the hackers weren’t able to modify any of the user data, it did persuade all its users to reset their passwords.

In the wake of increasingly frequent reports of notable websites being hacked, the two-step security is a prudent measure and Evernote’s decision to implement will be quite reassuring for its users.
