Thing 2: Online security made me reflect on the levels of security I currently use for my online presence. In a very informal, non-scientific ‘survey’ of password strength, I asked some folks the following:
Do you know what 2-step verification is?
The majority answered yes and were able to describe how the 2 step verification process ‘might’ work though none chose to opt-in to this service. Why? One respondent felt it took too long to complete the activity they were trying to do, while another has a minimal online presence and didn’t feel there was a need to employ such practices.
What do you think?
