Before Cyber Monday - Lock Down Your Login

The one thing you need to do before Cyber Monday:  Lock Down Your Login

The Department of Homeland Security’s Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign encourages you to enable strong authentication on your sensitive online accounts such as your email, banking, and social media accounts today. 

Enabling a strong authentication, sometimes called multi-factor or two-factor authentication, goes beyond just a username and password and is a useful way to lock down your login.

Taking advantage of the strong authentication – such as a unique one-time code through an app on your mobile device, biometrics, or security keys – that are offered by the majority of popular websites and services can go a long way in protecting your personal information online. The White House recently launched the “Lock Down Your Login” campaign to encourage all Americans to protect themselves online with strong authentication.
