Online security is a growing concern in a world where everything is becoming digital. Playstation have now announced that they’ve joined the 2-step verification gang, helping to protect its users.
In a move that is likely to please the top players and personalities that are constantly targeted by hackers, from the evening of August 25th, you’ll be able to setup 2-step verification using your mobile phone. If you enable the process, when you go to login, you’ll be sent a text message with a code that you’ll need to input.
Playstation statement –
“Passwords can be compromised if you use the same password for multiple accounts, click on malicious links, open phishing emails and other methods. If your password is compromised and becomes known to someone other than yourself, your account will still require a verification code to gain access when you activate 2-Step Verification.
When signing into your account on the network, you will use your password along with a verification code that you will receive on your mobile phone via text. By requiring two forms of identification for sign-in, your account and personal information will be better protected.”
