Two Factor Authentication. Canada 150 Recommendation #141

Friday’s= Cyber Security

Do you know what two factor authentication is?

Basically, it means that there are two things that have to happen before someone gets access to your account online. Sometimes it is the password and the answer to a security question like, who was your first pet? Or, what is the middle name of your partner?

Sometimes it is a code that is sent to your phone. The code then has to be entered into the site or app for you (or someone else) to gain access. So if the person who is attempting to hack into your life does not have your phone, they are less likely to be getting access.

Two factor authentication is a good idea and you should turn it on whenever possible.
