TeleSign Launches Step-By-Step Two Factor Security Guide

Concerned about security of your passwords? Los Angeles-based TeleSign, which provides much of the behind-the-scene, two-factor phone authentication services for major Internet services, said today that it has launched a new website to help users ramp up security for over a hundred popular websites. The company--whose two-factor authentication is used by websites to add another layer of verification to user logins--released step-by-step guides for turning on two-factor authentication for Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Apple, and many, many others. TeleSign is the two-factor authentication provider behind many of those services. Two factor security uses a call or text to your phone of a one time code, when you try to log in, to restrict login to your account or use of a service only to you, even if your password was compromised.
