Amen to that.

Google provide 2FA for their entire suite of apps (behind the "Google Account") - they also provide printable one time codes in case you lose your phone/flat battery etc.

Google Authenticator also allows other codes to be added from other apps. My Joomla installation and a NAS box (with PAM 2FA based auth) are sitting looking at me, under my Google Account.

Facebook also provide 2FA, which pops up on your mobile if you try to login on a PC.

Using the above has in no way been complicated, and it's reassuring knowing it's there.
