Tutorial Description

So you've secured your access to your online services with a strong password, but is that enough?

Some services are so important that it may be time to consider an extra level of security - two factor authentication or verification.

In this tutorial, I take a look at five popular services that now allow you to switch on this higher level of security, and use your phone to confirm your identity - Apple ID, Google, DropBox, Evernote & Twitter.

The added security isn't too onerous. Each service can be configured to only use the extra level of security when using a new computer or device - you don't have to use it every time. In the show, I take you through the basic configuration options and demonstrate exactly how it works in operation for each service.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Using 1Password
  • Securing Your Apple ID
  • Securing Google Services
  • Securing Your DropBox Account
  • Securing Evernote
  • Securing Your Twitter Account

I believe Two-Step verification for Apple-ID is only enabled in some countries. Norway is not one of them.

Sorry Jan, I didn't realise ;-( Will certainly mention it in the follow up show.
