Secure Your Accounts Today with Two-Factor Authentication on Jcsesecuneta

When talking about security and securing our online accounts, there are many ways of doing it: [1]Creating an easy-to-remember but hard-to-crack passwords and not writing it down on any piece of paper (or a text file); [2]Installing an anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, and running these software regularly (if these just sit on your computer then it’s pretty much useless).

Of course there is the most common suggestion or lesson for all – changing your habit. The big YOU. You don’t respond to obvious scam and spam emails, instant messages, or visit sites you shouldn’t be visiting, or clicking on links without checking if it was faked/masked or not.

  1. I use Two-Factor Authentication across a lot of my accounts. I feel a lot more secure when I can telesign into my account. If you have that option available to you use it, it is worth the time and effort to have the confidence that your account won’t get hacked and your sites are not up for grabs. If you opt into 2FA, you will have to “Confirm your phone”. You would receive a text message with a specific code to be entered into the system. If you don’t want to do this every single time, you can designate your smartphone, PC, or tablet as a trusted device and they will allow you to telesign in without the text code. Should an attempt to login from an unrecognized device happen, it would not be allowed.
