Protect Yourself with 2-Step Verification

Do you stay awake at night wondering if hackers are trying to get your Brenau email password and use it to blast out spam or viruses? Never fear: You can say goodbye to those sleepless night by enabling a feature called “2-step verification.”

Basically, this means that in addition to using your password, you will also be asked to provide a special code texted to your phone. So even if someone is able to guess your password or trick you into divulging it via a phishing attack, they still cannot log in without having direct access to your phone. Oh, and you won’t be forced to enter the code every time you check your mail, either – just the first time you log in from a new device.
