    It is a good idea and potentially a little bit more secure than an App like Google authenticator. I suspect it is weak security to use a phone based app and be logging in on the same phone.

    Godaddy used to only offer SMS 2 factor, which is not very secure at all. I wouldn't trust the company personally, last time I did a transfer out 2 months ago they also sent me an email asking me to confirm someone elses transfer.

    I keep getting confirm detail emails for domains no longer mine, which I understand but when I reply no longer mine they ignore and resend the emails ....... just annoying waste of time.

    They have a lot issues with old contact details still on domains after transfer, the whole place is a mess.
