E-mail accounts are frequently tied to banking information, social media accounts, and other online services. If your e-mail account password is compromised, then chances are increased that the same will happen to your other online accounts.
Erich Anderson: They are at risk for embarrassment, identity theft, financial fraud…
Halpern: That was Supervisory IT Specialist for the FBI’s Security Division Erich Anderson, who says enabling Two-Factor Authentication, or TFA, adds an extra layer of security between you and your online accounts and the cyber criminal.
Anderson: All you have to do is go into your settings and have the service send you a one-time code. That one-time code can be sent to your text on your phone or another e-mail account.
Halpern: That code is given only to you. TFA is easy to enable and is also a free service. For more cyber tips over the month of October, visit www.fbi.gov.
