I love this piece of software.
Please add google 2FA.

Also it would be cool if you would see the volume as as a folder icon and when you clicked on it you would be asked for the key and 2fA prior to mounting.
You could also drag and drop files into it and it does auth prior to encrypting.

This would make the nuts and bolts less visible to average users.

Keep up the good work!!!!

Some kind of 2 factor authentication can be nice. This can be yubikey, google, sms, microsoft or what-ever-system. In the end, on linux systems there is something called Pluggable Authentication Module. That is an interface for authentication for which there are many interfaces. I expect the google 2fa can be one of them. Hence, I'd advice VeraCrypt to create an interface for pam-modules (or an other one, maybe more platform independent).

For now, there effectively is already some 2 factor authentication if you need one for security reasons. Use a key-file and a password.
