At this biennial event, the participating companies exhibit their latest service robotic technologies and components Two-factor authentication works by attaching a phone number to a person’s account.When they try to log-in, it will send a unique code to that phone number, and that has to be typed into the site.It isn’t clear why there has been such a huge amount of these in recent months, but reports of them definitely do seem to be surging.The advice is the same as traditional phishing: responsible companies will never ask you to reply to a message with your personal details, or tell you to click on a dodgy link, so make sure that you always only give your information to official websites and be careful that you are.Another more new development is tricks that try and get around the two-factor authentication that many products now have built in – and which, for the most part, serves as a big problem for people breaking into your account.

But because they are done through the very personal but notoriously sketchy technology of SMS, they can be easy to spot.
One of the more recent scourges coming over SMS are i Cloud scams.
They aim to trick people into giving up the password that they use to get into their Apple account – and, once hackers are into that, then they can easily get your bank account details, your location, and more scary stuff besides.
If they want to have it shut down, it says, they need to reply to the message with the 6-digit verification code that they are about to receive.
It’s a sneaky way of getting people to put the authentication message that they have received from Google into a text message so that scammers can get around the security setup. Again, the key is never to enter any important codes into a text message or any unverified sites.
