In the past, I have posted on the forums while I am at work using my Android phone. I could logon to with my ID and password, but was not required to enter an Authentication code.

Today I was prompted for an Authentication Code. Um..I'm at work so I don't have my Authenticator. Are we now required to carry the Authenticator with us at all times? When did this change take effect?

I was going to post this question at work, but couldn't log on...nice...
