<p>We always talk about how important security is in our equipment and devices, because <strong>neglecting in this field can be very dangerous for different reasons</strong>. One of the most common ways to protect ourselves is to establish a password, but not any password (there are good and bad passwords).</p><div class=

On numerous occasions we comment on issues related to security. For example we talk about applications with which to improve security on Android, or we have analyzed which operating system is more secure or how to protect ourselves from threats and vulnerabilities in iOS.

But if we want to take a step forward in security, we can use the Second Authentication Factors (two-step authentication), which becomes a verification system for our account that allows protect access to it and avoid cases of phishing. It is something already implemented in platforms such as Google, Hotmail, Dropbox or Twitter.

The operation is simple, if someone tries to steal the password, you will not be able to access our account since you need the second authentication factor. In these cases, our smartphone can become our great ally, since it is that element with which to protect digital accounts. With the two-step authentication service we ensure that no one can use a particular account without our approval from our terminal through a number that is sent directly to it.

If we want to make it easier, we can use other utilities that avoid sending messages. In this case we want to present a very useful tool with which we will avoid problems since it works by protecting our digital identity, this utility is Latch ("latch" in English), what function as a digital lock so that we can open or close as it suits us. If we do not want to work with our accounts, we simply put the “latch” and we will be protected against possible phishing.

With a simple gesture we protect ourselves, as simple as that.

<p>Once the data is completed, they send us an email that we have to confirm to finish the registration (the link is only valid for 24 hours).</p>
<h3>Start the couplet</h3>
<p>Now is the time to <strong>Start the pairing from the website of the service integrated with Latch</strong>. If we are not sure how to do it, we have a small pairing tutorial.</p>
