The convenience of multiple tokens per user

I think this tweet lamenting the state of two-factor authentication and online identity will be increasingly common:

I know it's an extreme case, clearly Scott is a techy, he embraces 2FA and he clearly uses a lot of web services.  But imagine a non-technical person having to go through that, or just half of that.  They simply wouldn't. 

WiKID's capability for multiple tokens for a single username really helps out here.  Many power users have multiple devices, phones and tablets or a PC token could be placed on an encrypted drive.  A lost device might mean re-registering, but with less anxiety. 

The benefits of two-factor authentication are clear.  But it's also clear that we've got a ways to go.
