    Pretty surprised this isn't an option. I'm pretty hesitant to sign up for a financial service that doesn't offer even at least basic MFA via SMS, though MFA through an app like Authy, 1Password or similar is preferred.

    Hi Jason -

    Thanks for posting to the forum!

    NerdWallet accounts do not contain funds or perform financial transactions; but NerdWallet does use 2 factor authentication when you link financial accounts to your NerdWallet account.

    Best Regards,
