Question

1Password manages passwords and can create 2fa codes. Is that potentially too much of a single source of failure?

1Password’s TOTP feature is far more secure than using SMS

1Password doesn’t provide true two-factor authentication, but it can give you time-based one-time passcodes (TOTP) for 2FA. For the vast majority of people, using 1Password’s TOTP feature is far more secure than using SMS authentication.
