― Benjamin Franklin
You’ve heard it time and time again: use a strong password. By now, you might have a Lastpass account or KeepassX installed on your computer (and if you don’t, you should), and all your passwords are 99 characters of entropic perfection, making you feel like the digital Hulk.
But what if your computer gets infected with malware? What if that malware siphons up all your passwords and sends them off to some darknet market to be auctioned off? What if Lastpass itself gets a vulnerability that leaks all your passwords, or the service you’re registered to doesn’t do a good enough job in protecting your password?
In each case, you’re up a proverbially polluted creek without a paddle. Unless, of course, you’ve used two factor authentication.
Indeed right now two factor authentication is the best way to protect yourself from all kinds of threats. It is a security process in which users provide two different factors for authentication and verify them slaves. it is much harder to hack a password and a separate authentication mechanism than just a password alone.
Of course this second factor could be a fingerprint scan, a secret question, or a smart card, but right now the most popular way to use two factor authentication is through a temporary code (OTP – one time password) either sent to your phone as a text message, or generated through an authenticator app.its not too difficult to enable two factor authentication (2FA), you just need to log into account and go into the security or privacy settings and enable the 2FA. site will ask you for phone number for sending text to,or give you a QR code for you to scan with an authenticator app like Google Authenticator or Authy.
Then, you just need to confirm the resulting code you’re provided through the text or the app, and you’re off and away. Now, every time you log in you’ll be asked for a code that functions as a one time password (OTP), meaning it only ever works once and every time you log in it will be different.
With all of that said, however, 2FA is certainly not bulletproof. Increasingly, hackers are using extremely convincing phishing schemes that not only trick you into giving up your password,
but your second factor as well, and then quickly log into your account and wreak havoc. Does this mean that you shouldn’t use 2FA? No! Even with this risk present, 2FA still increases your defenses significantly.
Unfortunately, not many sites or browsers currently support U2F as it is still a fairly new protocol. Those that do support it include Google, Youtube, Dropbox, and Github.
If you want more services to use it, I highly recommend contacting those services and requesting that they implement it.
Fortunately, DongleAuth.info gives you some shortcuts to tweet at those companies that are lagging behind on what should be basic account security.
