First day in my ‘post a day’ challenge for November went well with me missing a post…so I shall indevor to catch back up 🙂 ..
There is a few reasons for this but one of the reasons is that I can’t just post from any device. I took the plunge a good while back and protect the site using the fantasic Duo Security two factor authentication system which means I have to have my phone to hand when logging into my Blog.
Yes, multi factor authentication is a pain in the ass but thats security. Its about balancing security with usability. I’d rather have the pain than allowing someone else to blog as me.
I also recomend using two factor authentication for all of your ‘primary’ accounts such as Microsoft (Technet, Outlook, Office 365), Google (+, gMail, Webmaster Tools), Apple (iTunes, iCloud), Twitter and Facebook. Using Windows Phone, I use the Microsoft Authenticator app which can be used for all of the sites listed here.
Logging on can be a pain, but I’d rather have the extra security.
