You might not think an online business needs insurance, but think about the computers you use, if you use an office to meet people in, and the many other forms of liability moms have with their online business. If something gets stolen and not replaced, could it risk the future of your business?

By asking yourself that question, you’ll be able to uncover the true power of insurance within the world of business. Having insurance can ensure that any losses or liabilities are automatically covered so it doesn’t put you at risk personally or your business at a risk of decline.

Two-Step Verification: Enhanced Access Control for Your Online Accounts

This method is so secure, I’ve accidentally locked myself out of my account and used it to reclaim it. A simple way of explaining this method is that it uses a second form of communication (usually an authentication app or simply a text message to you) when you initially login to your account. It triggers second-step verification in which you will either click a button that pops up or enter a code provided.

Running a business online no longer has to be a risky venture for moms. The state of internet security is at its prime and continues to only grow in strength. Keep in mind there are many other precautions that can be taken, which is why we always tell our visitors to do their homework first.
