Good Morning!
 
At the Kettle Moraine Council educational meeting on March 12, one of the speakers from Knight Barry Title spoke about how to prevent wire fraud. We wanted to send out information on how to make sure you setup up double factor authentication for your e-mail. If you do not have this, it leaves you vulnerable to having your email hacked.
I apologize if you received this email twice.
 
See below:
Turn on 2-Step Verification
With 2-Step Verification (also known as two-factor authentication), you add an extra layer of security to your account. After you set it up, you’ll sign in to your account in two steps using:
  • Something you know (your password)
  • Something you have (like your phone or a security key)
Step 1: Set up 2-Step Verification
Your account,  ahewitt@knightbarry.com , is through your work or school. Your organization might not allow 2-Step Verification. Check with your  administrator  to be sure.
  1. Go to your Google Account.
  2. On the left navigation panel, click Security.
  3. On the Signing in to Google panel, click 2-Step Verification.
  4. Click Get started.
  5. Follow the steps on the screen.
Choose a second verification step
When you set up 2-Step Verification, you can choose your second verification step. If you don’t want to use the text message (SMS) or call option, select Choose another option.

Security key
Google prompt
Step 2: Set up backups
Backups help you get back into your account if you forget your password, lose your phone, or can’t sign in for another reason. With backups, you’re much less likely to get locked out of your account.
  1. Go to your Google Account.
  2. Tap Security.
  3. On the "Signing in to Google" panel, tap 2-Step Verification.
  4. Add an alternative second step like: 
Step 3: Set up recovery info
If you forget your password or someone else is using your account, having updated recovery info can help you get your account back.
Add or update a recovery email address
  1. Go to your Google Account.
  2. Tap Personal info.
  3. On the "Contact info" panel, tap Email.
  4. Add or update a recovery email here.
Add or update a recovery phone number
  1. Go to your Google Account.
  2. On the left navigation panel, tap Personal info.
  3. On the "Contact info" panel, tap Phone.
  4. Add or update a recovery phone number here.
