It is very important to protect your email account! Your email is what you use to log into your RedFox account, so it's vital to keep it safe. If you ever lose access to your RedFox account, you will need to reset your password, and the instructions will be sent to your email.
It's a good habit to two-step, as long as it is offered; this includes Paypal, Facebook, emails, etc. If it exists, you should definitely opt for it!
First off, what is two-step verification (aka two-factor authentication)? Two-step adds an extra layer of security to your email account. When you have two-step on, you will need to input an extra piece of information whenever signing into your email. You may receive this extra piece of information through a text message, a phone call, or a another email account. Note: in order to use this function, you may need a cell phone, landline, or a secondary email.
This prevents unknown users from entering your account and causing possible damage to your account. With two-step, if you are keylogged, the malicious person on the other side will have no way of knowing that extra piece of information, therefore they are denied access. Excellent!
Plenty of email providers offer two-step verification, including Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, and Outlook. If you have a less common email provider, check to see if they offer it.
You might think, "It will never happen to me!" but you'll be sorry when it does! It may seem tasking to take an hour to collect all your personal accounts and two-step them, but you'll thank yourself in the future! If you have any questions regarding two-stepping your email, please contact your provider.
After you have two-step set up, you can set which devices are "trusted devices" so you don't have to constantly re-enter the two-step each time. Additionally, some providers will let you know when someone has attempted to access your account. As long as you have two-step verification turned on, you should never lose access to your RedFox account for long!
Stay safe and play safe. Keep account stealing at bay!
