default 2 step verification security

Post by melodiccolor on Wed Dec 12, 2012 4:03 pm

A few of us or our family members have experienced getting hacked over the last few years. This is getting to be such a common problem that many providers are now offering 2 step verifications to help prevent this. As my husband once got his business email hacked and all contents were stolen and permanently lost, I think it is an excellent idea to use these features.

I'm already using two-step verification on one e-mail account, but there are also various privacy concerns regarding the internet:

and for a compelling horror story of what happens when you do not use two-step verification:

A rather long read, once again, but very worthwhile!
