Here, Must bi a system of second step of verification during login. It meas when I login to my account, system send me code on my mobile and when I put this code for verifaciton, system allow me to log. 

Last time my account was hached. If there was a system it was not happened.


The benifit is that when bad guys would not only have to know your username and password, they'd also have to get a hold of your phone.

I disagree.

What about people who don't have a phone?


I have been very successful finding work on oDesk without needing a phone, and I have no intention of getting a phone just so I can work on oDesk.


(Being phone-free is more than just a status symbol, it's a really wonderful lifestye choice.)

Hi Safraz and Preston,


Thank you for sharing your opinions and I am sorry, Safraz, your account has been hacked before. oDesk Team is continuously working on making the platform and users' information more secure and identifying any sort of hacking activity early.

I would also recommend setting up a security question and answer, if you haven't already.
