Would Facebook ever consider having the option of two factor authentication (something similar, if not compatible with Google Authentication/TOTP/MOTP apps)?

I use it too, but I must admit to wishing they would make it compatible with Google Authenticator or some other OATH implementation. SMS'ed text codes take way too long to be a good second-step when you're having to login everyday like I do (not to mention logging in from work where my reception is almost nil).

We're working on improving this flow.

However, if you tell us to trust a given computer when you log in, you shouldn't have to enter the code more than once.

I can't speak for the iOS app but the Android app will generate tokens.

It does, and I'm using it.
