That smartphone you're not using for voice chat on Switch can still come in handy.

Nintendo Accounts are now a bit more secure.

The Nintendo Account page has updated to support Google Authenticator as well as other 3rd party applications with Google Authenticator support. Signup can be enabled on the main Nintendo Account page.

The additional security comes as the Nintendo Account has recently added PayPal support for eShop purchases.
