Our clients often tell us that they are concerned about privacy when it comes to their email addresses and with good reason. It seems like we hear about companies being hacked and personal information being stolen every week. Hackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated, so it’s vital that you take steps to protect your email and personal information online.
We’re encouraging all of our clients to set up 2-Step Verification for their email accounts. If you’re not sure what this is or how to set it up, we put together this short video to demonstrate Google’s 2-Step Verification security feature when using a Gmail account. If you’re not using Gmail, other email providers have this feature and the set up is similar. For a list of specific sites that do (and don’t) support this type of verification, go to Two Factor Auth (2FA) .
To learn more, read our article, The Best Online Financial Password Managers Reviews and Ratings. We discuss the importance of dual authentication and how to determine if the platform you are using has this type of security.
