Namecheap.com announces improved domain security with Two Factor Authentication
NameCheap.com has just sent an announcement out to let their users know that they now offer improved domain security with Two Factor Authentication.
Two factor authentication is now available at Namecheap. In short, this is another layer of security that’s required for access to your account. A password goes as far as the person who knows it. When that password is compromised, your account information becomes vulnerable. 2FA adds a second layer of security: Phone authentication. With 2FA, your account is accessible only to the person who both knows the password AND receives the text message we send upon any attempt to access your account.
We’re really excited to roll this out. It’s disabled by default, but you can turn it on by logging in to your Namecheap account and accessing Two Factor Authentication under Personal Settings. The rest is up to you.
It is great to see NameCheap offering this additional layer of domain security and really surprises me that more domain registration companies don’t offer this service.
NameCheap is about to celebrate there 13the birthday and shall also be running some prize giveaways for the special event, Visit NameCheap.com on the 24th of October 2013 for all the details.
