Don’t find yourself needing to learn this lesson the hard way!
A unique and strong password is only the first step to cybersecurity!
Multi-factor authentication is an electronic authentication method in which a computer user is granted access to a website or application only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence to an authentication mechanism: knowledge, possession, and inherence.
Ubiquiti, a manufacturer of routers and networking equipment informed its customers recently of a data breach that may have exposed personal details. If a common password was used by the customer, those credentials can now be used to access other sites and services.
Cybersecurity should be a priority! We recommend using 2 factor authentication when available as well as a password manager to ensure you have robust and unique passwords across your digital life.
