New Checks: Plain-Text MFA Codes Now Available on Windows and Linux

June 2nd, 2020

We are excited to announce the immediate availability of six new checks that complete our check coverage of looking for plain-text multi-factor codes and recovery documents for GSuite, Github, and 1Password.

These recovery documents are essentially plain-text passwords that allow anyone who has them to bypass the multi-factor prompt on their respective services.*

Like all new checks we ship, they are enabled by default, but will not produce any notifications for you or your users until a team-member configures them to do so. You can review these new checks by clicking on the “multi-step-backup-codes” topic on the Checks page.

If you have any questions or feedback on these checks, or would like to see similar checks for additional services, please let us know.

* An exception to this statement should be noted for 1Password’s Emergency Kits. While these kits do contain sensitive data like the vault’s secret key and sign-in address, it requires the user to explicitly write down their master password for it to grant a bad actor full access to their vault.
