Two step authentication is the best way to protect your platform from unauthorized access. It is common these days to hear that peoples blog or website is been hijacked on daily bases. Two step authentication is a systematic arrangement that requires you to enter a unique pass code generated by an app on your mobile device or sent via text message, in addition to your username and password. This package is very much available for word press bloggers, one of my visitor lamented how he is about to lose all the work he tried so hard to get to hackers.

There are some other ways you can secure your blog without two step authentication and I wish to bring it to the notice of every one. Generating strong password is one the fundamental way of protecting your account. The hacker don’t do magic they guess your password especially if you use letters that is familiar to your account like your user name, first name, last name , name of your country. All these names are not good at your password should a mixture of small and capital letters even sign like ,.?;;’; are very much welcome.
Do well to change your password regularly: regular changing of password is one of the best way to secure your account. Some spammers may manage to snick into your account but when you change your password periodically you disable their access to your account
Do not click on links you do not trust: some fraudsters hijacked peoples account through such means. Any time you click on such link when logged into your account you stand the risk of losing your information to them.
