The biggest vulnerability to being hacked is still the human factor.
Successful hackers have a bewildering array of psychological tricks in their arsenal.
A cyber attack could come as a polite request, a scary warning, a message ostensibly from a friend or colleague, or an intriguing “clickbait” link in an email.
The best way to protect yourself from hackers is to develop a healthy amount of scepticism. If you carefully check websites and links before clicking through and also use 2FA, the chances of being hacked become vanishingly small.
The bottom line is that 2FA is effective at keeping your accounts safe.
Just as burglars in the real world focus on houses with poor security, hackers on the internet look for weaknesses.And while any security measure can be overcome with enough effort, a hacker won’t make that investment unless they stand to gain something of greater value.
