MultiFactor Authentication: What Are The Options?

Your log-ins should involve two things – a strong, unique password per account, and multi-factor authentication.

We talked about password management in our January newsletter. Multifactor, or 2-factor, authentication is an additional layer of protection for your account log-in.

There are various methods available for this additional layer of protection. Most people are familiar with getting a text sent to their mobile phone. But this method has issues, including past examples of being breached.

Stronger protections are out there – authenticator apps you can download to your phone, and physical keys you can use (as long as you keep a duplicate!) So take a look at our February newsletter to learn more about how to use MultiFactor Authentication on all your accounts.
