Here’s how cyber criminals try to hack your accounts while you sleep

There’s a cyber attack that targets you while you sleep. It sends dozens of notifications to your phone in the hope you hit YES and let criminals into your account. Here’s how to stay safe

Tired of the constant flood of MFA notifications? 😩

Cybercriminals are banking on your "MFA fatigue" to access your sensitive data. BUT Microsoft's got a solution! Curious?

Let me explain:

  1. Microsoft Authenticator now offers number matching to help protect users from MFA fatigue attacks. When you get an MFA notification, the app shows a random number you need to input, ensuring it's a real login attempt. No more guesswork! 🔢
  2. But wait, there's more! Microsoft Authenticator also supports biometric authentication. That means you can use your face, fingerprint, or other unique physical features to verify your identity. Say goodbye to remembering all those codes! 👋🔐
  3. This makes it harder for cybercriminals to exploit your MFA fatigue and gain access to your business data. Remember, these attackers deliberately flood employees with MFA notifications, counting on you giving in to frustration or exhaustion.
  4. Microsoft Authenticator's number matching and biometric features act as extra security layers, making sure that cybercriminals can't take advantage of your alert overload.
  5. Already using Microsoft Authenticator? Great news! Number matching is ready to use - just ensure your app is up-to-date and you're good to go. Start protecting your business data today. ✅
  6. If you're using a different MFA system, consider how it can be improved or made easier. Don't let MFA fatigue compromise your security!

Stay safe out there! 🔒🚨
