It is the Holidays and we are having fun with our family, friends, and parties! Our focus and attention are not on our online accounts... which means that while our focus is elsewhere, it is a great time for hackers to pounce. And it may be a while before you even notice!
It is common knowledge in the online marketing world that the Holidays are the one time of year that hackers like to break into your accounts. Setting up a two step verification on every account you have is a great start to protecting yourself and your client information.
You should have a 2-Step Verification for:
Your Website (or Wix Account if I built your website)
Your CRM Account (you have client emails and phone numbers at risk)
Retail Accounts (Amazon, Walmart, Instacart, Best Buy, etc... any account that has your credit card info)
Vendor Accounts (MailChimp, HomeSnap, Homebot.ai, Homekeepr, Keeping Current Matters, etc... any account that has your payment info and collects or houses client data)
MLS Association (if they offer it, set it up)
Protecting your client database is YOUR job. Take the extra step to add the 2-Step Verification to your accounts. This way, you will either get a text message or email with a 5 or 6 digit code to log into your accounts. If you aren't the one logging in, then the verification is working. NOW, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD! If they figure out your user name and password, they can get into your accounts unless you have the 2-Step Verification!
If you aren't sure how to do that, set up time with me and I maybe able to help.
