Dreamhost now supports Multi Factor Authentication

The simplest definition of Multi-factor Authentication is that it requires that the user provide more than one form of verification in order to prove their identity and to allow them access.

We know that passwords alone are no longer safe. To allow access to your dreamhost panel it would be safer if you were asked for another form of verification like your Google credentials. You can enable Google Authenticator as a multi factor authentication option for logging in to your DreamHost panel.

More details on how Google Authenticator works with our panel can be found here: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Enabling_Multifactor_Authentication
