Two-Factor authentication in Github enabled

The latest to embrace the two-factor authentication solution is Github. The online project hosting website makes the feature available to all of its users.

It adds an additional layer of security to your account. When logging in to GitHub, after providing your username and password, you will be asked for a two-factor authentication code that is delivered to your mobile device via SMS or a free two-factor application.

To enable the feature, you may head to your account settings and you will see the two-factor authentication option, Github also provided a more detailed information here.

The Github feature works mainly for now in SMS and other authentication app. You may click on the official announcement by Github itself for complete details.
