    These are all very good things. I particularly like the "Recent Activity" and the "Security Notifications", letting you know if anyone other than you has been in your account.

    Two-step authentication will let you know instantly if someone is trying to get into your account, as well as preventing them from getting in, because you can set it up to send a code to your cell phone (the code is a temporary password, expiring in five minutes, and it is required in order to complete the login process). If you get the code, you will know that someone is trying to get into your account.

    My insurance company and Paypal send me a code whenever I try to log in. More companies should use that method.
