The Social Security Texting Debacle
Earlier this month the Social Security Administration instated a policy that required the use of text messaging in order to log in to Social Security accounts online. They have since repealed this requirement due to immense outcry. The policy was in good intentions as it added an extra layer of security that would make it more difficult to hack in to accounts, but the method in which it was implemented was not ideal for the demographic that uses this service. They are now working on alternative ways to add extra security that works better with those that use the online platform for Social Security.
