Two-factor authentication is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself against getting your accounts hacked, and you should enable it now if you haven't already.

When you first enable two-factor authentication on a site like Gmail, LastPass, or Facebook, they will set you up using SMS as your second factor. So the next time you log into Facebook, you'll receive a 6-digit code as a text message whenever you try to log in. However, there are other ways to set up two-factor authentication—most notably, with an app that generates the codes for you.

Read http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/11/new-type-of-auto-rooting-android-adware-is-nearly-impossible-to-remove/

"Researchers have uncovered a new type of Android adware that's virtually impossible to uninstall. The adware exposes phones to potentially dangerous root exploits and masquerades as one of thousands of different apps from providers such as Twitter, Facebook, and even Okta, a two-factor authentication service."

There have a few that push 2 factor as a panacea. From here it looks like it's still up to you to not install trashed apps.

I was looking for 3rd party who can provide me OTP for transactions on my website. I searched for few providers and I finally cracked a deal with a cyber security solutions company called NCI https://nci.ca/. Sorry for the whole confusion people. I just saw my mail today. Anyways, Thanks for all your suggestions Happy
