Instagram is poised to roll out two-factor authentication across its network, according to a report in TechCrunch.
Instagram’s security will work a bit like Google’s implementation. You’ll verify a phone number and if someone logs into your account with your email and password, you’ll receive a text with a code that will also need to be entered to gain access to your account. This way, even if someone steals your email and password, they’d still need access to your phone to actually log into your account.
There’s no word yet on precisely when Instagram will release two-factor authentication, but suffice it to say that when they do, you should use it!
