This LIFARS post from last Friday should shake up every service provider. It’s definitely time to make Two Factor Authentication (TFA) obligatory for all services which process personal details.
TFA is no longer a matter of technology. For example, Authenticator Apps are available for all phone operating systems and, really easy to use. Combined with even a weak passwords the one-time passcodes generated by the authenticator apps form a nearly unbreakable authentication method.
With this, news like Ashley Madison Breach Reveals Ridiculously Weak Passwords are a thing of the past.
Take care! And learn how-to protect yourself against identity theft.
