Tip of the Week: Activate Microsoft’s Two-Step Verification

Tip of the Week: Activate Microsoft’s Two-Step Verification

Nowadays a lot of accounts give you the option to set up two-step authorisation; and, most of the time you probably should. The security and privacy benefits that your business can gain are substantial. Today, we’ll describe how to enable what Microsoft calls two-step verification. 

What is Two-Step Verification?

It’s two-step authentication, a security measure that adds the traditional password with a secondary authentication that forces users to add additional proof of identity. Microsoft’s strategy is to contact a user every time a device is used to access an account. Users can use email, phone, or an authenticator app to gain access. 

Turning on Two-Step Verification for Your Microsoft Account

The process to activate two-step verification is simple:

  • Sign into the Security basics page for your Microsoft account
  • Access More security options
  • Locate Two-step verification, and select Set up two-step verification
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process

Microsoft offers the options of choosing a phone number, an email address, or an authentication app. If you choose the latter, you will have to link your account to the app of your choice. 

If you are looking to add two-step verification for your Microsoft account, our professionals can help. To get the help your organisation needs, contact our knowledgeable IT professionals today at eManaged at 1300 363 308.
