Only 3 steps! How to protect your account login information from threats


Only 3 steps! How to protect your account login information from threats

According to lifehacker on August 28, Microsoft’s decision to reset passwords for 44 million accounts is actually a good thing. If you’re one of the people whose accounts are affected, you can thank Bill Gates. That’s because Microsoft is searching its database of more than 3 billion accounts that were leaked and alerting people to the fact that some of them contain information about you.

What can I do to protect my account?
Microsoft has been forcing you to reset your account for a significant period of time in 2019. Whether or not you were asked to create or set a new password, a recent report from Microsoft’s security agency offers the following suggestions for those who want to further protect their accounts Given the frequency with which passwords are reused by multiple users, it is important to protect passwords with some form of strong authentication. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an important security mechanism that dramatically increases (each user’s) preparedness for security. With MFA enabled, 99.9% of identity attacks have been proven to be thwarted; you can learn more about Microsoft’s Azure MFA here. Microsoft also offers a solution to protect customers from replay attacks. It warns users that they are at high risk and notifies administrators to force password resets. Frankly, these are not things that Microsoft should be doing. I would be happy if they did, and I wish all companies were as diligent in protecting the login information of their own users’ accounts. But this is something you can do.

1. use two-factor authentication
First, you should always use two-factor authentication for your account if it is available. It is easy to find out which company or service offers it, and it only takes a little time to set up. This does not guarantee perfect security, but it does make it much harder for an attacker to break into your account, even if they know your login and password.
