The Off-the-Record messaging protocol provides a mechanism for verifying a 3rd party by giving a simple question with an answer which only the sender and recipient should know.

 

It might be useful to have a mechanism like this in BTSync. Particularly, generating a secret which when entered by the recipient prompts them to answer the given question. Answering correctly would allow syncing as usual.

 

Any input on this feature request is welcome.

It sounds like a 2FA to me, might be worth looking into, especially if people send secrets via email and would want their BTsync share to be safe.
