Christmas is coming and… we’ve got a problem here at Tiger Mobiles. See, Santa obviously needs a roof to land on and, well, we’ve been having some issues with ours. Rain isn’t a problem, since we just send an intern around with buckets, but the weight of Santa, nine reindeer and a sleigh full of presents could result in a very messy (and traumatising) disaster.

Let's face it, mobile phone bills can get expensive, particularly if you're not always careful about who you're calling, how often, and when. If you're on a budget then a Pay as You Go phone plan allows you to control your phone spending more carefully, but PAYG prices do tend to be more expensive than contract prices, so you won't necessarily be saving in the long run.

Whilst many of us won't be at huge risk, it's always better to be safe than sorry. Fortunately, many major banking services, apps, and even email softwares are introducing two factor authentication in an effort to keep your data even safer. So what is this, do you need it, how do you use it? That's what we're here to find out.
