Nine out of 10 UK retailers are failing to boost customers’ log-in security with two-factor authentication (2FA), according to new research from LastPass.
The LogMeIn company used the Black Friday shopping period this weekend to raise awareness about the continued security failings of many online retailers.
Only Amazon passed the 2FA test among the top shopping sites in the UK by 2017 retail sales. Asda, Very, Marks & Spencer, Argos, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Ocado and Next all failed.
This is despite most retailers on the list making an annual revenue of over £1 billion, with a couple (Tesco and Argos) well over that.
