John Hammond

Cybersecurity Researcher, Huntress

Over the last year, more and more accounts have been hacked and subject to account takeovers. While using a strong password and two-factor authentication is better than the alternative, the use of SMS-based authentication is the heart of the problem. But not all 2FA setups are built the same and the one that's perhaps the most vulnerable to account takeover is also one of the most popular.

What you'll learn:

    • Different types of authentication in the market today
    • How does SMS-based 2FA work?
    • How are hackers intercepting one-time codes and taking over accounts
    • How biometric-based authentication works & why it's a smart alternative
