Protect Both Your Own and Your Clients’ Personal and Professional Data
Two factor authentication (2fa) is available with many Internet sites and services (though you may need to manually choose to use it) and it can greatly increase the security of your clients’ accounts.
Rather than simply relying on a static username and password, 2fa introduces a second authentication entry such as a onetime password sent via text to a cell phone, an ever-changing code entered from a physical token or token app on a smartphone, or a one-time password sent to an email address.
Of these three options, there is one that is less secure and may even equate to a completely false sense of security.
