Data breaches and security issues happen on a daily basis, and are gaining more and more notoriety amongst the media.  Two-Step (or Two Factor) Authentication requires not only your password to gain access to the account, but requires it to come from a trusted machine, text message confirmation, or phone call to ensure it’s really you logging in.  Many of the popular sites you already use have 2-Step Authentication available, you just have to enable it.  Use this great listing from Gizmodo that summarizes the top sites and ensure your accounts are secure as possible.  Better yet, tell your less tech-savvy friends, parents, or elderly friends, and help everyone get more secure in this digital age!
