2FA        


Besides changing your passwords often, and making sure they are unique and complex, there is something else you can do to protect yourself online. It's 2FA. Two Factor Authentication.

This fancy term is the key to more secure access to Gmail, PayPal, your online banking, and more. Passwords as the only mean of authentication is no longer sufficient to be safe as they can be stolen as we know all too well.

You need something else to protect yourself in case your credentials end up for sale on the dark web. It could mean the difference between sleeping soundly and having your email account taken over, or worse, your bank account wiped clean. Find out how to take advantage of this security feature.


Oh, and one more thing...................
