    I use Two-Factor Authentication across a lot of my accounts. I feel a lot more secure when I can telesign into my account with an OTP. I am glad that is offered as an option for many sites, but not enough. It is worth the time and effort to have the confidence that your account won’t get hacked and your personal information isn’t up for grabs. It would be nice to see more of the leading companies in their respective verticals start giving their users the perfect balance between security and user experience. I know some will claim that 2FA makes things more complicated, but the slight inconvenience each time you log in is worth the confidence of knowing your info is secure. I’m hoping that more companies start to offer this awesome functionality. To me this should be a prerequisite to any system that wants to promote itself as being secure.

    • Pandora, thankyou for your reply, I do sometimes feel I’m the only paranoid/Careful one I know! Thankyou for endorsing this. But I bet you have read some horror stories as I have of folks getting hacked, and losing some really important access and information. Never think you are too small for it to happen to you! At least if you do some basic security, you have more chance to protect your content and accounts. You wouldn’t leave your doors open at night in a location where your likely to get robbed…but many people do that on computers, just assuming they are safe don’t they?
