A new eBay 2-step verification method has been launched via the eBay mobile app. The aim is to prevent access to your eBay account even if someone becomes aware of your password.
With this new feature, you can use the eBay app on your mobile device to receive a notification to approve your sign in. Now, even if someone else knows your eBay password they will be unable to log into your eBay account without your knowledge as the eBay 2-step verification gives an extra layer of security designed to prevent unauthorised access to your account.
This will be fantastic for those who only log into their account themselves, but won’t be quite as convenient for businesses that need to allow account access for multiple employees. In this instance the best solution is normally to use third party tools to give access as eBay don’t yet have multiple login access with different permission levels.
