AirDroid Review: How to Sync Android Notifications with Mac

AirDroid Review

Sometimes my Android phone is a bit far from my reach and I have received an “important” SMS that I need to access in 30 seconds1. Instead of having to go grab my phone from the other room, unlock it, open the SMS app, read the code, memories and then type it on my MacBook. I have found another, much easier way to do all of this right from my MacBook using an app called AirDroid that allows me to Sync Android Notifications with Mac as well as having full access to my Android device.

Meaning that as soon as that SMS is received on my Android phone, I will get a notification on my MacBook. I can copy part of it like the TFA code or reply to it if it’s a person I’m talking with.

Keyy Review: Best Clef Alternative

Keyy Review: Best Clef Alternative

I still remember the excitement that I felt when I found out about Clef, the no-longer-available two-factor authentication app that helped me get rid of the password that I use to login to News47ell’s admin dashboard. It was magical, but sadly, the excitement didn’t last for too long. Clef shut down and the team moved to join Twilio to work on Authy.

I was left with the same old, boring login method for my site.

Today, I get to be excited again thanks to the great people over at UpdraftPlus because they released their promised app they claim is going to be the heir of Clef.

Keyy two factor authentication, a brand new WordPress plugin, iOS & Android app by the developers of the popular WordPress backup plugin UpdraftPlus, is going to bring back the good old days of not having to enter that hard to remember password 1 every time I want to login to my admin dashboard.

So go ahead and read my Keyy Review: Best Clef Alternative and kiss your WordPress login password goodbye

What is Two Factor Authentication?

Two Factor Authentication

Two factor authentication is a way of verifying a user’s identity using two factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have. It’s a second layer of security to ensure that no one can access your account. You can think of it as a second password.

If you have a bank account and used online banking, then you have used Two factor authentication. It’s the code that is sent to your phone to verify your identity. This is just one way of getting that code, out of five.

The other way is by using a Two factor authentication app. An example of that would be 1Password, Authy or Google Authenticator. Services like Google, MailChimp and Lightning Base allows you to pick an app as your authentication method.

You can also get the code by an automated phone call, an email or by a hardware token such as the RSA SecureID.
