Particularly concerning sensitive accounts, such as your email, online banking and cloud storage, regular reviews and the updating of authorized devices thereof act as a defense against potential security threats. If you identify a new device that you either don’t recognize or no longer use, remove it immediately and file a report if necessary.
Here are some tips for managing your list of authorized devices:
- Make a list of all the devices you use to access your sensitive accounts.
- Regularly review the list and remove any devices that you no longer use.
- If you see a device that you don’t recognize, remove it immediately and contact the account provider to report it.
- Enable two-factor authentication on all of your sensitive accounts. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring you to enter a code from your phone in addition to your password when logging in.
By following these tips, you can help to protect your sensitive accounts from unauthorized access.
