Tech Tip – Set Up 2 Factor Authentication on All Your Social Media

G’day – Marc here and I received a friend request today that I wanted to share with you.

A longtime friend that I haven’t heard from in years suddenly sent me a friend request through Facebook. What struck me as odd is that I already had the individual as a friend through social media. This led me to believe that their profile may have been hacked. If they had enabled enhanced security on their social media, chances are this wouldn’t have happened.

I know Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a bit of a pain sometimes but these days its a necessity that gives web services (including social media) an extra layer of security. I looked online and found a comprehensive article that includes instructions on how to enable 2FA on many popular social media sites. If you need any help, or if you have any questions, give us a call! Have a great week!

Cheers, Marc
