Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) Badly Needed ASAP
We have already set up multi factor authentication, but since SMS based 2FA is not 100% secure and becoming less so by the day, we would like to move to U2F which is currently 100% secure. If you are unfamiliar with U2F, here's a link that may help: https://krebsonsecurity.com/tag/u2f/
Redtail’s Product Owner has read the suggestion and there is some internal discussion needed in order to determine next steps.
This suggestion is remaining open and can continue to gather votes and comments!

we really need to have this as a broker dealer and RIA, as well as a redtail platform partner.
Agreed 100%. Also, SMS based 2FA is not actually two factor authentication, it is two STEP authentication.
With SMS-based codes, if our hourly employees access Redtail they have to use a PERSONAL PHONE for work purposes.
Redtail could at least implement TOTP-based 2FA. It is not as good as U2F/FIDO and FIDO2, but it is much better than SMS-based verification codes
