Two Factor Authentication

Two Factor Authentication

Is there any way to enable two factor authentication for my comcast email?  Given that I can't find anything (all Comcast help says is they can give me a PIN that I then need to always use when logging in), this seems to be a major threat to my security.  All my password resets go to my Comcast account so if someone hijacks that account (since we know passwords are not secure), they can then reset the password on all of my other accounts.

 

Anyone at Comcast can you respond?

AFAIK Comcast does not offer two factor authentication.  Gmail, Outlook.com and (I think) Yahoo have it.  And there are others I'm sure.
