Smart home security is a hot topic at the moment, what with Ring having had some accounts comprised partly due to users reusing passwords from other accounts, not having two-factor authentication enabled and also contractors having had access to video feeds.

Google’s Nest is planning on boosting its users security later this year by requiring that all new and existing users to enable two-factor authentication, but not SMS based as this can be easily comprised, it’ll be email based.

For complete security, Nest is recommending to migrate your account to a Google account.

Nest will be requiring users to activate two-factor authentication some time this spring.
