The first thing that occurs to me is that we need a registration exception, as it requires a long password, and a 4 digit pin to setup the mobile app, and/or an 8 character code for setting up SMS.
[Jason] I am not a security specialist, but I understand that the use of SMS in multi-factor authentication schemes is considered insecure and not to be a recommended practice.
