With the recent attacks on LinkedIn and many more to come, it's imperative to turn on two-factor authentication for any system you don't want to go broke. Enabling two-factor authentication spreads the risk across two virtually independent devices (phone and PC) and thus makes it virtually impossible to hack.
Here in this article I'll show you how to enable 10-Step Verification for Windows XNUMX PCs. If you enable it, no one will be able to access your PC, unless and until you have access to your phone as well. Let's see how it's done.
How to enable Windows 10 XNUMX-Step Verification
Step 1: - First of all go to your microsoft account and log in there.
Step 2: - Now, click on Security and Privacy.
Step 3: - Now click Other security settings
Step 2: - Now to verify yourself you need to get the unique security code on your phone or email.
3 pass : - Now, enter the code received on your mobile and verify for yourself.
4 phase: - Now, the next screen will ask you to install an application so you don't have to wait long to get the security codes. This is recommended as it will speed up your two-factor authentication. Set it up now.
5 pass: - Now select the operating system of your phone, Android, Windows or iPhone.
Step 6: - After downloading and installing the app on your phone, the verification process will run again. Microsoft will send you a verification code on your phone and you will need to go in and click Next to verify your phone.
