Double-authentication on your social account is a MUST !

Oct 27, 2021 | In the spotlight

A very short post today to remind every FaceBook™ account “owner” that enabling the double-authentication security control is very important.
Because complicated passwords are not a real protection anymore, a 2-factor protection is a key milestone of your personal security and the privacy of your data. New websites have recently popped up “from nowhere”, in order to help voyeurs and sneaky individuals to hack into other people’s social-media accounts.

Remember that a few months ago, the European Commission was advising us to close our FaceBook™ accounts, if we cared for privacy: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/03/26/close_your_facebook_account_if_you_want_data_privacy_eu_commish_tells_court/ 

Unfortunately, it’s not so easy from a purely business and commercial perspective to leave FaceBook™ and especially if your customer target or all your friends and family only communicate via this media.

2-factor authentication is the correlation of 2 of the 3 ways to identify someone:
·       What you know (password, passphrase, pin code…etc.)
·       What you have (security token, usb dongle, smartphone, smartcard…etc.)
·       What you are (biometric signage: fingerprint, retinal print, vein print…etc.)

The purpose of a 2-factor login is to handle your account accesses in a more accurate and resilient way in order to limit the risk of identity theft.

Here is the way to secure your FaceBook™ account with 2-factor login: https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150172618258920

In 2014, 4.93 million Gmail™ passwords were leaked by hackers, here is the way to secure your Google+™ account with 2-factor login: https://www.google.com/landing/2step/

…and of course LinkedIn™: http://blog.linkedin.com/2013/05/31/protecting-your-linkedin-account-with-two-step-verification/


DO NOT TRY TO USE ANY WEBSITES OR SOFTWARE CLAIMING TO BE ABLE TO HACK INTO OTHER PEOPLE’S ACCOUNTS OR TO DISCOVER PASSWORDS AS YOU WOULD BECOME, YOURSELF, THE VICTIM OF A REAL HACKER.

DO NOT EXPECT ANY GOOD FROM BAD PEOPLE !
