We have had customers in the past request that feature which we forwarded to our developers. So far, it seems that there are not any plans to have that.

so.. you make devices that control people homes, and give access to peoples personal cameras.. but don't bother to provide modern security methods to keep control over those things safe. Seems dumb.

2 factor authentication should be a priority security software update ASAP.  You see on the news everyday about compromised accounts.  If you don't want to scare customers away from your products by not offering this critical feature, you should be looking to offer this security measure within the next month.

I enjoy the products but will hold off purchasing more until this update occurs. This is critical.

@Tony is there any update on this?  New breaches daily, we need 2FA on the Kasa system, its not an 'optional' thing in this world anymore.  Is there any movement?

We have stressed this on behalf of smart home users, and it is on their (devs) minds. Hopfully we will have that as more households integrate our smart home products, but as of now there is no update.

@Tony Thanks for the reply.  It's a bad indicator - If they don't take simply enabling 2FA seriously on home-control devices (cameras for crying out loud) I'd imagine they don't take security seriously at all.  In general, its known in the industry IoT security is just awful all around, but to not even attempt to further secure their customers with simple 2FA, is in my view, is negligent considering the security climate we are in today.

 

I'd strongly urge you to send this message to your superiors and the leaders of your company, and ask them to be a leader in IoT by investing in proper security.  This could in fact become a selling point for you.

agreed my friend. this is the main reason why I'm actually going with another company because I'm all about security, especially when it comes to cameras that can, I don't know...., view what you're doing.
