Blameless and Shrewd

Think clever passwords will protect your accounts? Think again.  

Cybercriminals are experts! Thus the need for two-factor authentication, or 2FA. It’s an extra layer of personal security for online accounts to protect you from the barrage of online hackers. 

Besides a username and password, another factor must be used to gain access to an account. It can be something you know – like a personal identification number, the answer to a secret question or a specific keystroke pattern.

It could be something you have – like your credit card, smartphone, or smartwatch. Or your fingerprint, iris scan or voice scan.

This prevents attackers from accessing your account even if they have your passwords, or you’ve lost your phone.

Chances rise significantly for the hacking of any sites that don’t use 2FA. Some are more complex than others, but all offer better protection than passwords alone.

With cybercrime, reputations can be destroyed and bank accounts emptied instantly.

Proverbs 11:20 reads: The perverse in heart are an abomination to the Lord, but the blameless in their walk are His delight.

And, Psalm 18 states: …to the devious you show yourself shrewd. 

We must be blameless AND shrewd to guard ourselves, our loved ones, our businesses and bank accounts. 2FA gives that extra layer of protection.
