I use 2 factor authentication (2FA) for pretty much every account I use that offers it. One account that I hadn’t used 2FA was at Escrow.com because it had not been offered. I have always wanted to have additional security measures at Escrow.com, but until recently, 2FA was not offered.
As of the beginning of this year, Escrow.com is now offering customers the ability to enhance their account security using 2FA. When you login to your account and click on Profile in the top menu, you will see a group of drop down options. One of those options is Two Factor Authentication. Clicking on that will allow you to configure 2FA on your account with an authenticator app like Google Authenticator or with SMS Authentication.
The data within a long-held Escrow.com account would be quite valuable to an outsider. Not only does it have an account holder’s purchase and sale records, but it also has counterparty information like names and email addresses. In addition, accounts likely have banking details as well.
I strongly recommend that everyone add 2 factor authentication to their business related accounts. This includes email accounts, domain registrar accounts, banking accounts, and Escrow.com accounts as well. I don’t see any downside to adding it.
Thanks, I enabled it now in my account.
Better late than never!
2FA is good to enable… and I recommend adding it. Just not through Google Authenticator, as it’s been compromised in the past. While 2FA is good, there are still ways around it if the hacker wants to get into your account; and they can disable it, as well.
I know of plenty of domains that have been stolen even though 2FA was enabled. Just sayin…
