Put the device in a fresh plastic bag when you enter the lab. Done.

I just tested this - put my iPhone in a plastic bag and used it while wearing nitrile gloves.  Worked fine. The only catch is you have to punch in the access code because the fingerprint reader obviously won't work.

Hi all,

I received this question on Twitter yesterday. For those who perhaps aren't familiar with two-factor login, it's when you log into an account using your password and an additional code that you receive via text message, an app, or a key fob. Codes often reset after 30 seconds.

"any suggestions on dealing w/upcoming required 2factor login to our ELN (which we use from gloves-on lab computers)?"

Is anyone already dealing with this in their labs? If so, how are you advising people? If not, what are your thoughts, assuming that you will have to deal with this issue eventually?

I'll probably do a blog post on this, so assume that responses are on the record. Feel free to give me a call if you prefer, or let me know when would be a good time to call you.
