File photo. (REUTERS/Eduardo Munoz) It was bound to happen: Two-factor authentication (2FA) – that extra step that’s supposed to keep our devices and personal information safe – just no longer cuts it. The idea behind 2FA is simple: You log into a given account using your username and password from a new browser, location or device, and you get second authentication request, like a text with a temporary PIN. You enter this temporary code and voila – you’re in. Because most hackers can’t access your phone, your account should be safe. Your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts already should have 2FA set up. If not, learn how to set up 2FA on your most popular accounts using my step-by-step guide. Technology is always evolving, and cybercriminals have found flaws in the 2FA system – especially if you’re using your personal phone. Hackers are finding ingenious ways to hijack phone numbers. Wonder how criminals pull it off? I have the scoop on … [Read more...] about One step to protect your online accounts from hackers and scammers

Abby Ohlheiser, The Washington Post Published 5:05 pm CDT, Wednesday, July 18, 2018 The moment was like bit of tragic theater: Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader was on the mound at the All-Star Game at Nationals Park. As he pitched, his reputation was being dismantled, piece by piece, by his own vile Twitter history. Hader tweeted the N-word multiple times 7 years ago, when he was 17. One tweet contained an allusion to white power. He tweeted derogatory things about women. Over an eight month period, Hader appeared to use his Twitter account as a public outlet for some of the worst thoughts in his mind. One now-deleted tweet used a derogatory term for women, and said he needed someone who could "cook, clean right," and have sex, except using yet another expletive. (The tweet's wording is identical to a line in a song that has a vulgar title.) As the tweet circulated last night, someone replied, "which bible verse is this?" Hader's Twitter bio referenced a pair of … [Read more...] about Josh Hader’s All-Star Game controversy shows how online ghosts will haunt us

Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Subscribe Log In Subscribe Log In Advertisement Supported by Traditional banks have been slow to lift rates for savers even as interest rates have risen. ByMatt Phillips April 13, 2018 Savers should finally be getting a break. After a decade of being near zero, short-term interest rates have risen sharply in recent months. Typically, these rates — three-month T-bills, Libor, commercial paper — move together because they reflect the same basic economic reality. Slow but solid growth in the United States since the Great Recession has finally altered the balance between borrowers and lenders. Higher rates mean those with cash to spare now have the upper hand and can demand a higher price to part with it. That’s how it’s supposed to work.
