If you don’t already have two-step authentication enabled on your all your account, you really need to turn it on for anything sensitive. Here’s how.

If you’re not worried about the security of your accounts, you’re ignoring a serious threat that’s confirmed by a neverending deluge of security breaches. Two-step authentication is one of the best ways to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts, even if somebody manages to steal your password. Here’s how to do it.

in about a year or so it will be recommended there be a three step authentication in order to stay secured. I hate to say this but I really do not see a need for two step for all accounts. the only account I have a two step is with my password manager lastpass. at this time, I think that is safe enough.

just as a side note, if you do enable 2 step auth, and you are using any apps or programs to access your account. Like an email client on a PC or phone/tablet
you will need to get a special APP password to continue to access the account.
