Logging in to your different applications, we mean?
Increasingly some apps are offering an alternative to just entering your email and password and we’re seeing more and more people using biometrics to log in. It’s great, because it’s almost impossible for someone to clone your face, your fingerprints or your retinas.
Around 150 million people are already using biometrics and with more and more devices, apps, and software giving you the option of using biometrics rather than traditional passwords, that number is only going to increase.
So how do you get started?
You may already be using biometrics to access your phone with Face ID or fingerprint ID. Newer laptops and tablets are also now giving you this option to access your device, and to manage your passwords across online accounts and apps.
But where it doesn’t come as standard, or biometrics are not available, you can easily add an extra layer of protection when you login.
Two-factor, or multi-factor, authentication, reinforces your password with an additional layer of security to validate your identity and helps to protect against credential theft. You will often see this added through an authenticator app (our favorite at Databranch is DUO!).
As we’re seeing cyber-crime rise every year it makes sense to take any new measures you can to protect your business and its data.
If you would like two-factor authentication set up for your business, our team would love to help. Give us a call at 716-373-4467 x 15 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how!
