Two-Factor Authentication Giveaway

This is part public service announcement (PSA) and part giveaway. If you're not familiar with two-factor authentication, it is the requirement that a password is not enough for you to log into a site. These days, it typically involves getting a text message to your mobile beyond just a regular login. Once you've verified that a machine is safe, future logins from that machine only require the password.

To learn more about it and how to enable it for sites like Facebook and Amazon, visit the the Turn on 2FA site. While there, you can enter to win a Lenovo laptop and one of FORTY pizzas every week, in the form of a Pizza Hut gift card. Okay, it is the last week with the contest ending 1/20, but I just learned of the giveaway. Given all the password breaches you hear about, turning on two factor authentication is an important protection against embarrassing releases of personal and financial information.
