3 Things to Know about 2-Factor Authentication (and some advice)

1. it's something you have
2. it's not available online everywhere
3. it's not a 100% guarantee
You should use it wherever it's available, along with having a good password management app or process, watching all your online accounts for suspicious activity, and practicing safe computing. Don't leave your digital life and online identity as easy pickins for hackers - be a 'hard target'.

My spam and junk mail has increased exponentially in the past 2 weeks. Has yours increased too?

Practical Help says there is huge uptick in "phishing" emails - free gift cards and sales that show major merchant labels. You can tell they are fake by looking at the From address and seeing it isn't from that merchant. These are all fake and if you follow the link you go to a look-alike website and risk getting malware or giving up online identity details.

Please share with your friends if you find this helpful.
