WHAT IS TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION (& WHY YOU NEED IT)

Do you have 2-factor authentication set up for your email or other accounts?

What is two factor authentication and why you need it

Two Factor Authentication, AKA “2FA” or “two step verification” is an extra layer of security for your account.

It requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, you have — often your phone, but sometimes email. When you log-in, it asks for your username, password and then says something like “we’re going to send you a code; enter it here when you get it” and then they text or email you a code. It’s one more hoop that a hacker would have to jump through to get into your account.

Now you can add this for Squarespace!

I HIGHLY recommend this as an added layer of security for your website. Just like you want to protect your physical belongings, you want to keep the virtual home of your business safe too!

Here's how to do it.
