Namecheap
« on: February 05, 2024, 09:05:24 AM »
Just renewed our Namecheap account for the next year.
The debit card on file had expired, so I needed to go on the site and fix that... trouble is when you rarely ever go on a site like this one that deals with your financial information you should have safeguards in place, like seriously difficult passwords, two-step verification and any number of other access controls that you can set up.

So, you know me, being a bit on the paranoid side, I have the site locked down pretty good and when you couple that with my brain fade issues in recent times. This whole process should have taken about five minutes, but it all went on for about one hour!  shocked028

I think I've mentioned this before... Use Notepad++. Even if you don't save your files it will still open them after you close then and reopen it...as long as you don't close the individual files and don't save them. ;) They will ways be there!

Also, send two-factor authentication to your cell phone and not your email address. It'll make things easier. You can just click the link on your cell, etc. which ever way they do it and be done with it instead of having to open and read your emails, especially if you have multiple email accounts. ;)

I have the same problem Ken  ;D

Have to use password manager and cell phone method too.

You do need to be vigilant these days.

Yeah, I use my cell phone as part of the two step and Notepad++ has played a big part in my routines for years now. And then the LockCrypt password manager has been on my desktop as long as I can remember.

I really don't know why it gets a low rating, because for me it has always worked well.
