okay this topic it’s not sexy but it is

2
00:00:02,760 –> 00:00:08,040
very important hey welcome back for

3
00:00:06,569 –> 00:00:09,360
another episode of the bootstrap

4
00:00:08,040 –> 00:00:11,219
boutique where beginners build

5
00:00:09,360 –> 00:00:12,360
businesses I am glad you’re here today

6
00:00:11,219 –> 00:00:14,969
because we’re going to talk about

7
00:00:12,360 –> 00:00:16,740
turning on two-step verification with

8
00:00:14,969 –> 00:00:19,800
your Amazon seller central account and

9
00:00:16,740 –> 00:00:22,260
why that is so important let’s talk

10
00:00:19,800 –> 00:00:24,330
about the why first why is it important

11
00:00:22,260 –> 00:00:26,910
to turn on two-step verification the

12
00:00:24,330 –> 00:00:29,970
simple fact is because Amazon accounts

13
00:00:26,910 –> 00:00:31,920
are getting hacked frequently a big part

14
00:00:29,970 –> 00:00:34,980
of this hijacker issue that was going on

15
00:00:31,920 –> 00:00:36,930
a month or so ago was that hackers were

16
00:00:34,980 –> 00:00:37,920
getting into old Amazon accounts and

17
00:00:36,930 –> 00:00:40,020
this nut accounts that were already

18
00:00:37,920 –> 00:00:41,399
existing but hadn’t been used in a while

19
00:00:40,020 –> 00:00:45,090
and they were using those two lists

20
00:00:41,399 –> 00:00:46,980
hundreds of products fraudulently they

21
00:00:45,090 –> 00:00:48,870
were able to do that because those

22
00:00:46,980 –> 00:00:51,000
accounts were just like I said they were

23
00:00:48,870 –> 00:00:53,010
not being used anymore so it was a lot

24
00:00:51,000 –> 00:00:55,320
easier to tack into those accounts

25
00:00:53,010 –> 00:00:57,539
because nobody’s really watching them

26
00:00:55,320 –> 00:00:59,370
that’s about as technical as I can get

27
00:00:57,539 –> 00:01:01,770
as far as explaining how that happened

28
00:00:59,370 –> 00:01:03,239
so that happened to account for you know

29
00:01:01,770 –> 00:01:04,710
pretty much an active but it could

30
00:01:03,239 –> 00:01:06,960
happen to your account too and it can

31
00:01:04,710 –> 00:01:08,790
happen much more quickly then you would

32
00:01:06,960 –> 00:01:09,270
realize and the meal does do anything

33
00:01:08,790 –> 00:01:11,460
about it

34
00:01:09,270 –> 00:01:14,070
so you’re really your account at Amazon

35
00:01:11,460 –> 00:01:16,439
is at risk if you don’t have this 2-step

36
00:01:14,070 –> 00:01:18,720
verification turned on so what 2-step

37
00:01:16,439 –> 00:01:20,970
verification means is if you sign into

38
00:01:18,720 –> 00:01:24,630
your Amazon seller central account on a

39
00:01:20,970 –> 00:01:26,729
new device it’s going to alert you via a

40
00:01:24,630 –> 00:01:29,070
way that you’ve previously said you want

41
00:01:26,729 –> 00:01:31,860
to be alerted is email or text or phone

42
00:01:29,070 –> 00:01:34,079
call and they will do that and then you

43
00:01:31,860 –> 00:01:35,280
have to put in the code to then be able

44
00:01:34,079 –> 00:01:37,650
to log into your account on the new

45
00:01:35,280 –> 00:01:39,450
device this is similar to like what bank

46
00:01:37,650 –> 00:01:41,340
accounts have done online for a while

47
00:01:39,450 –> 00:01:43,259
now I’ve had to do that anytime I go log

48
00:01:41,340 –> 00:01:44,850
onto a new computer and yes you’re like

49
00:01:43,259 –> 00:01:48,540
oh this is kind of annoying it’s

50
00:01:44,850 –> 00:01:50,130
obviously me but it may not always be

51
00:01:48,540 –> 00:01:52,380
you because I will believe something

52
00:01:50,130 –> 00:01:55,920
that’s kind of scary I turn two-step

53
00:01:52,380 –> 00:01:57,869
verification on a month ago and there

54
00:01:55,920 –> 00:02:00,540
have been two times when I’ve got

55
00:01:57,869 –> 00:02:02,700
notification from Amazon via text that

56
00:02:00,540 –> 00:02:04,649
say hey here’s your new PIN and I’m like

57
00:02:02,700 –> 00:02:06,930
oh I didn’t ask for that so that means

58
00:02:04,649 –> 00:02:08,660
twice somebody has tried to get into my

59
00:02:06,930 –> 00:02:11,120
seller central account and

60
00:02:08,660 –> 00:02:14,150
is really Fieri so what I want you to do

61
00:02:11,120 –> 00:02:15,800
today is put this on the top of your

62
00:02:14,150 –> 00:02:17,750
to-do list if you currently have an

63
00:02:15,800 –> 00:02:20,150
Amazon seller central account you need

64
00:02:17,750 –> 00:02:21,860
to turn this on it is simple to do it

65
00:02:20,150 –> 00:02:23,270
will take you five minutes we’re going

66
00:02:21,860 –> 00:02:25,010
to go to the computer now and walk

67
00:02:23,270 –> 00:02:27,260
through how to set that up so setting up

68
00:02:25,010 –> 00:02:28,880
two-step verification and Amazon sellers

69
00:02:27,260 –> 00:02:30,530
and so it was really easy we’re going to

70
00:02:28,880 –> 00:02:32,510
walk step-by-step through what you need

71
00:02:30,530 –> 00:02:34,340
to do first thing you’re going to do is

72
00:02:32,510 –> 00:02:36,890
obviously log into your seller central

73
00:02:34,340 –> 00:02:38,570
account from there in the top right hand

74
00:02:36,890 –> 00:02:40,670
side you’re going to go to settings and

75
00:02:38,570 –> 00:02:42,140
then scroll down to login settings

76
00:02:40,670 –> 00:02:44,000
that’s going to bring you to a page that

77
00:02:42,140 –> 00:02:46,550
shows your name your email your password

78
00:02:44,000 –> 00:02:48,290
everything you use to log in and then

79
00:02:46,550 –> 00:02:50,000
the last option is advanced security

80
00:02:48,290 –> 00:02:51,890
settings so you’re going to go ahead and

81
00:02:50,000 –> 00:02:53,660
click the edit button and once you’re

82
00:02:51,890 –> 00:02:55,400
here because I already have my setup

83
00:02:53,660 –> 00:02:57,350
once I do have my phone numbers in there

84
00:02:55,400 –> 00:02:58,820
but for you if you’re doing this for the

85
00:02:57,350 –> 00:03:00,770
very first time we just go ahead and

86
00:02:58,820 –> 00:03:01,850
click that get started button but from

87
00:03:00,770 –> 00:03:03,020
there you’re going to indicate what

88
00:03:01,850 –> 00:03:05,390
device you want to receive these

89
00:03:03,020 –> 00:03:06,890
notifications on and so for me I have

90
00:03:05,390 –> 00:03:08,300
two DS my cell phone because I pretty

91
00:03:06,890 –> 00:03:10,430
much always have it with me and then I

92
00:03:08,300 –> 00:03:13,490
do have my actual we have a landline

93
00:03:10,430 –> 00:03:15,410
phone number as my backup which can

94
00:03:13,490 –> 00:03:18,020
obviously only receive a land call

95
00:03:15,410 –> 00:03:19,700
landline call but for my phone my cell

96
00:03:18,020 –> 00:03:21,920
phone I did put it that I wanted to

97
00:03:19,700 –> 00:03:23,600
receive a message via text so there’s a

98
00:03:21,920 –> 00:03:26,030
few different options here but this is

99
00:03:23,600 –> 00:03:27,740
how I’m going to set mine up until I put

100
00:03:26,030 –> 00:03:30,080
in my phone number and you hit send code

101
00:03:27,740 –> 00:03:31,730
and within really it says it to give it

102
00:03:30,080 –> 00:03:33,980
a minute or two but for me it’s always

103
00:03:31,730 –> 00:03:35,780
been pretty much instant they’re going

104
00:03:33,980 –> 00:03:37,400
to text you a code and then you verify

105
00:03:35,780 –> 00:03:39,470
the code that you receive you hit enter

106
00:03:37,400 –> 00:03:41,510
to continue there are some other

107
00:03:39,470 –> 00:03:42,739
alternate sign and methods that you can

108
00:03:41,510 –> 00:03:44,300
choose so you’re just going to want to

109
00:03:42,739 –> 00:03:46,040
make sure that you read through these

110
00:03:44,300 –> 00:03:48,470
and then click OK and then once you’re

111
00:03:46,040 –> 00:03:49,910
done you will get a green notification

112
00:03:48,470 –> 00:03:52,340
that you have turned on 2-step

113
00:03:49,910 –> 00:03:54,530
verification so like I said it is really

114
00:03:52,340 –> 00:03:56,420
easy it won’t take you five minutes no

115
00:03:54,530 –> 00:03:57,860
reason not to do it oh and one last

116
00:03:56,420 –> 00:04:01,250
thing I did want to remind you guys is

117
00:03:57,860 –> 00:04:04,100
don’t forget to change your password you

118
00:04:01,250 –> 00:04:06,290
should do as I say and that as I do and

119
00:04:04,100 –> 00:04:08,750
don’t keep a password for like years on

120
00:04:06,290 –> 00:04:10,790
an account that’s important to you so

121
00:04:08,750 –> 00:04:13,070
make sure you’re changing updating your

122
00:04:10,790 –> 00:04:14,750
passwords regularly all right well

123
00:04:13,070 –> 00:04:16,940
that’s all you have to do is turn on

124
00:04:14,750 –> 00:04:18,799
that two-step verification so make sure

125
00:04:16,940 –> 00:04:20,750
you do it and I will talk to you next

126
00:04:18,799 –> 00:04:21,600
time take care I’m going to talk about

127
00:04:20,750 –> 00:04:23,970
two

128
00:04:21,600 –> 00:04:26,430
factor purification what is the call to

129
00:04:23,970 –> 00:04:30,180
stuff I’m going to talk about two steps

130
00:04:26,430 –> 00:04:32,010
office authentification often

131
00:04:30,180 –> 00:04:34,910
constipation why can’t I say it

132
00:04:32,010 –> 00:04:34,910
