New website features the ultimate guide to turning on 2FA for more than 100 popular websites.
Account security is our passion here at TeleSign. Our business is providing the world’s largest websites and apps with the technology to make the Internet a safer place for all. Today, we’re taking things to the next level by launching a new campaign to educate everyone who uses the Web on how to protect their online accounts and prevent hacks. Turn It On, featuring the Ultimate Guide to Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), is now available worldwide at www.turnon2fa.com.
This resource provides step-by-step instructions for turning on 2FA for more than 100 websites—including popular online banking, social networking and shopping sites. The site also offers a consumer-friendly overview of what 2FA is, real-world examples of why it should be turned on and a video explanation of how it works.
As part of the Turn It On launch, TeleSign also released its new Consumer Account Security Report, revealing that 70 percent of consumers lack a high degree of confidence that their passwords can adequately protect their online accounts. The new research also shows that the majority of consumers (61 percent) still do not know what two-factor authentication is, even though it’s available on almost every account, free to the consumer and just waiting to be turned on.

Highlights of the report are featured in this also-just-released TeleSign 2FA Infographic.
