“Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)”

Presented by Jim Macak,
Double Click President
Kevin Sears,
Double Click member.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a method of adding extra security to your on-line accounts. Unfortunately, in this day and age, even using a “strong” password may not be enough security to protect you, your belongings and your data. The addition of 2FA is a solution to this shortcoming.

During the on-line presentation, we will discuss why passwords don’t offer adequate on-line security, the concerns over text message-based 2FA, and the use of software and hardware 2FA.

In addition, the agenda for this month will feature the Double Click annual business meeting, including the election of officers and board members.

In consideration of the health threat from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, “in-person” Double Click meetings at UW-M have been changed to “virtual” on-line meetings. We have chosen to use the Webex meeting software from Cisco as our on-line platform.

In order to “attend” the virtual meeting, members will need to download and install the free Cisco Webex Meetings software app on their computer, iPhone or iPad.

A .pdf document of instructions for installing and using the Cisco Webex Meetings software is available here: Double Click Virtual Meeting - Software Instructions.

Double Click Beginner’s Sessions

Most Double Click monthly main meetings start with a presentation tailored especially for “beginners.” The session host is Steve Parker. Steve, the long-standing Beginner’s Group Coordinator and current Double Click Vice President, demonstrates macOS X tips and basic techniques.

Steve’s presentations are a popular feature of the first part of Double Click meetings. New (and even experienced) users are always sure to learn a tip or three from Steve. (If you have a tip, bring yours along to share!)
