Two-factor passwords are the easiest way for the non-technical majority to use passwords safely and securely
Like two-factor authentication, two-factor passwords enable greater online security by requiring two forms of identification before a password can generated or revealed. In the case of two-factor passwords these are:
Something that we know – a pattern
Something that we have – a hint
The two-factor method of generating and revealing passwords has significant security benefits for the non-technical majority.
The Benefits of Two-factor Passwords
Two-factor passwords enable the non-technical majority to improve online safety by making the switch to much more secure passwords.
Two-factor passwords are strong passwords
Two-factor passwords make it simple to ditch easy-to-guess passwords and switch to more secure strong passwords
Two-factor passwords are unique passwords
Two-factor passwords make it easy to ditch reused passwords and switch to more secure unique passwords
Two-factor passwords are protected passwords
Two-factor passwords are never stored or recorded anywhere – online or offline – and so are fully protected from theft and prying eyes

Quickly learn how to defend against phishing scams. Free-of-charge.
Phishing attacks are favoured by scammers as the primary way of installing damaging malware (such as ransomware, banking trojans or cryptojacking apps) onto our devices. To defend against these constant attacks, we must learn how to tell the difference between a phishing scam and a legitimate message. No amount of software is going to give us the guaranteed protection that we need. Not anti-virus. Not anti-spam. Not firewalls. They are all fallible. Our only reliable defence is to know what a phishing scam looks like. And to avoid them when we see them.
The good news is that all phishing scams have common traits (tell-tale signs) that we can use to detect them. And the even better news is that there are only a small handful of these traits that can be learned in minutes. Once we have mastered the tell-tale signs of a phishing scam, the chances of becoming the next victim are reduced.
