Ted Shin | Information Security Officer | Customer Education
Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a terrific way to protect yourself from Social Engineering threats out there. MFA gives you a physical layer of security when authenticating your identity with your service provider such as banks, online shopping, social media sites and other important online accounts. It is highly recommended to enable MFA when your service provider supports this security feature.
