Bluddy two stage authentication.

It's not enough the banks and other financial institutions now make us jump through hoops for their security and suffer the inconvenience of two stage authentication codes sent to a mobile to verify it's you after 15 years.
But just recently I have been asked to provide my mobile number to be sent a code for a €5 ink cartridge and even verify my location to buy online market places. Even bluddy Farcebook now has decided this must be in place to allow you to access your account on another appliance.

It's getting worse.

Ray,

They do have to at least try to appear to be protecting you from fraudsters and others who might seek to impersonate you. After all, they do need to be certain which version of you is trying to log in . . .

Sorry, couldn’t resist


Regards,
John

It might have been when Messenger locked everything up and I couldn't access my Farcebook account because they were sending a code to a long gone mobile number Baz.
Now even to access my electricity account it's asking for two stage verification and code.

Drives me nuts, too, Ray! Even more exasperating because we cannot get a signal inside the house.

Does anyone bank with Tesco bank? We have a credit card with them and I have tried and tried to manage it online but I am going to close it. Just can't get through the security checks.

Any recommendations for a new one? I had heard that John Lewis is a good one?

Hi Pat.
When Barclays, MBNA, Nat West etc started charging for 'foreign' use 2.95% on every purchase we changed over to The Post Office.
We have both been using PO cards now for many years and never paid any charges at all plus get a good mid rate.
When travelling we use the French Credit Agricole Gold Card for the insurance.

I do love the Post Office so might support them.

Now I come to think of it we do have a Nationwide one which we never use. Will have to see how easy it is to manage on line.

Nationwide online send an authorisation code to a mobile to log-in. I use an Ipad with finger tip ID which does away with that. Also works for other banks.

That's a good point! I have a current account and use my ipad to log in with the finger print. I wonder if I use to set up a tesco loggin? Probably too late now as I have a username, unique number and password already registered with them.
