Security tool expanded to 185 countries.
Non-U.S. customers of GoDaddy can now activate two-factor authentication to add security to their accounts.
The service has been available in the U.S. for several years, and international customers have been asking for it.
The SMS-based system sends a text message to customers after they enter their standard login credentials. They must enter a code from the text message before gaining access to their account.
In theory, this means someone would have to obtain both your login credentials and phone in order to crack into your account.
Other registrars, such as Uniregistry and eNom, use Google Authenticator as an app-based two factor authentication. These work in all countries.
GoDaddy’s international expansion of two-factor authentication adds 184 countries, so odds are it works where you live.
