|Authenticate your logins with a code that’s sent to your phone (and only your phone)|
|Give a USB security key to all your employees and clients – their security (and yours) will benefit|
- Order a USB security key. Look for devices described as FIDO (‘Fast IDentity Online’) – here’s a FIDO selection on Amazon – or head straight for the Yubico YubiKey page. Expect to pay from £18 to around £40.
- Go to Google’s 2-Step Verification page, click Get Started then sign into your account. Choose a backup 2FA method, click Security Key, then plug in your unique USB stick. Google automatically registers it to you.
- Choose a second 2FA method such as SMS code, plus a backup method such as a printable code, Google prompt or authenticator app.
- That’s it – welcome to the top one per cent!
|Double-lock your double-locks by choosing more than one 2FA method – and a backup|
Two Factor Auth
- Amazon: Go to Your Account, ‘Login & security’, enter your password again, and then click Edit next to Advanced Security settings.
- Apple: Go to the My Apple ID page then click Security, Two-Factor Authentication.
- Dropbox: Click the Security tab to set up SMS or app authentication. To configure a USB security key, follow Dropbox’s instructions.
- Facebook: Go to ‘Security and login’ in Settings and scroll down to ‘Use two-factor authentication’. Click Edit to get set up.
- LinkedIn: Go to Account Settings then click Turn On to activate SMS authentication.
- Microsoft: Log in, click Security, click the ridiculously small ‘more security options’ link, verify your identity, and then click ‘Set up two-step verification’. Doesn’t yet support USB security keys. Some Microsoft services, such as Xbox 360, still don’t support 2FA at all.
- PayPal: Go to My Profile then click My Settings, Security Key and then Get Security Key. Don’t accept the offer to get a new code texted to you every time you log in, because then a hacker can do it too!
- TeamViewer: Go to the login page, open the menu under your name, click Edit Profile then click Start Activation under the 2FA option. Supports authenticator apps only, not SMS.
- Twitter: Go to ‘Settings and privacy’, Security, then tick ‘Login verification’.
- WhatsApp: In the mobile app tap Settings, Account, ‘Two-step verification’.
