Lock Down Your Login

The process of authentication, or proving who you are, is key to protecting your information, such as your email, social media, or online banking accounts.  You may not realize it, but there are three different ways to prove who you are: what you know, such as a password, what you have, such as your driver's license, and some part of you, such as your fingerprint.  Each one of these methods has advantages and disadvantages.  The most common authentication method is passwords, which are something you know.  Unfortunately, using passwords just by themselves is proving to be more and more insecure.  In this newsletter, we teach you how to protect yourself and lock down your login with something far better than just passwords.  It's called two-factor authentication.
