If you've scrolled through Tumblr lately and thought to yourself, "Hey, this could use some added security," the blogging platform has your back. Today the outfit announced that it's adding two-step authentication as a means of keeping your account safe. Authentication codes are sent either via a text message or an app like Google's Authenticator, and work akin to basically every other service that uses them: simply input the code with the rest of your login credentials and you should be good to go. Tumblr says that the verification process won't interfere with using the mobile apps, but you'll need to create a one-time password via your account settings page in order to sign in on your device. From the sounds of it, this shouldn't take any longer than finding your next favorite Emma Stone GIF might.
