Something like this could happen. What other websites should you enable 2 factor and change passwords?

I didn't either. I had to google how to set it up because its buried in their settings for some reason.

Thanks for the heads up, OP.

Not sure why you wouldn't share the steps but I will.

Log into your PayPal Account, got to settings and then to the Security tab. Now go to Security Key.

This is what I do and for anything important I'm starting to create whole new email accounts that I only use for that one thing.

And I'm starting to think of getting a separate computer to only use for business things.

You should consider a VM before doing that. Much better use of your resources.

You could run Linux in it for free. But don't assume Linux itself is the answer for security.

My neckbeard is nowhere near long enough to understand anything you just said there.

But I will research it.

Anything that touches my bank account or is valuable in it's own right (PSN, XBL, Steam) has 2FA and of course my Gmail so no one can fuck around and change my passwords.

Paypal allows those sorts of transactions for a normal user of their services without locking down the account?

My bank texts me and immediately calls me the first time they see something out of the ordinary and if I don't respond quickly they lock the account.

I didn't know about the PayPal 2FA. Added that now. Thanks.

This is a useful check of websites that support 2FA.
