2-Factor Authentication reduces risk by 99%.

The biggest cause of attacks are from a business being hacked and your data leaked online.

Consequently, your email address password has likely already been leaked, find out here.

Therefore, it is strongly advised that 2-Factor Authentication is enabled on sensitive accounts.

90% of passwords can be cracked in under 6 hours.

As mentioned in this article, passwords normally get leaked from the databases of websites.

This allows hackers to get the “hash”, which is an encrypted version of your password. 

As well as this, hackers trick people into giving them passwords on fake Microsoft sites.

2-Factor Authentication

For example, a hacked associate sends you a file, but first you must visit the site to see it.

You can configure your computer to remember you.

This is because there are cookies on your browser that will trust that it is you signing in.

Not only this, you can be notified of any attempts to sign into your account around the world.

That’s because websites have begun implementing security as a feature on most accounts.

For example, Microsoft’s Azure can track suspicious behavior like a login from elsewhere.

2-Factor Authentication

Despite this, the majority of people still reuse passwords and don’t use 2-Factor Authentication.

For instance, someone could sign into your emails and begin resetting other accounts. 

As a result, Google is going to make it the default standard very soon for users of Gmail.

2-Factor Authentication

To conclude, Total Support Solutions can help your business add 2-Factor Authentication.

We recommend adding it on all important accounts.
