The Internet of Things (IoT), or smart connected devices as it’s also known, is set to grow at about 3 billion devices a year until there’s something close to 30 billion devices in use across the world by 2020 and beyond.

We’ve not seen such a surge and rapid adoption in new technology since the smartphone was introduced. For instance consumer demand for smartphones jumped from about 170 million devices sold annually about five years ago to more than a billion of these pocket computers in 2014.

We may think of smart connected devices as fitness bands, smart watches, and smart thermostats but these are only the first generation of devices. And there’s a lot more that goes on with IoT that is beyond the public eye.

Two-factor authentication adds a layer of protection to the standard password method of online identification. You simply add another identification feature alongside your password and it’s usually a phone number. It’s free and quick and easy to do. Critics point out that because you usually have to use your phone number it’s just one more bit of information you’re handing over to a third party. This is true, but as hacks and database breaches become increasingly common it’s also one of the most practical and simple protection options available.
