WannaCrypy has wreaked havoc on computers that haven’t been updated in ages. Microsoft repeatedly notified users of the dangers of not updating their software but in many cases the warnings fell on deaf ears. We really do need to take online security seriously and the great news for MailChimp users is that by enhancing security MailChimp provide us with a 10% subscription discount.
How to save 10% on MailChimp every month
If we enable two-factor authentication on our MailChimp account then MailChimp automatically provide the 10% savings. Even if we aren’t security aware then enabling the security features saves us money.
How does the additional MailChimp security work
Two-factor authentication, the additional security measure that MailChimp recommends, involves entering a code in addition to your username and password. The code is accessed via an app on your phone, tablet or computer. Popular two-factor authentication apps that work on both Android and iOS are Authy and Google Authenticator (both apps are free).
Many people don’t enable two-factor authentication as they believe that it will be time consuming to enter a code every time they login to MailChimp. This really isn’t an issue as MailChimp will remember that you’ve entered the code for 14 days so you only need to reenter the code every two weeks.
To enhance your MailChimp security and save money then follow the instructions that MailChimp provides.
