New Year, New You! #3 - Use SecondFactor Authentication

By Dave Pagenkopf

Continuing on our Personal Security tune-up series... here is a 3rd idea to help protect your privacy and computer security.

It's called Second factor authentication. It's a bit like exercise and vegetables. We know it is good for us, but for some reason we don’t use it. Second factor authentication is an additional step to protect your account from hackers. For example, Google supports second factor authentication for their products that when enabled requires the user to enter a special numerical code in addition to their password. It is a free service that Google offers to improve the security of user accounts.

Many financial institutions allow you to set up second factor authentication through a smartphone app or even a text message to a mobile phone.

Once you enable second factor authentication on your critical accounts then a hacker -- even if they have your username and password -- won’t be able to log into your account.
