Is Mint going to do anything about improving support for two factor authentication in the near future?

I have a number of issues with two factor authentication. Mint is constantly putting in requests to my retirement account with Vanguard, which results in me getting multiple security authentication texts from Vanguard every day. Also, I can't seem to link my Bank of America account because of the two factor authentication method BofA uses.

It appears that Mint doesn't have an appropriate solution for accounts with two factor authentication. Since two factor authentication should become the norm for security, and I'm extending it to all financial accounts that support it, Mint has lost its value.

Is Mint going to do anything about improving support for two factor authentication in the near future?

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
