Rule n° 18 - The website offers a mechanism to prevent account or identity theft.

The number of attempts of account theft or identity theft on the web is considerable. To avoid this, Web services can put in place mechanisms to verify that it is indeed you, and it's good that you want to make your online operations. Several mechanisms can be set up depending on the criticality of the content and services concerned. For example, if you hear of two-factor authentication, it is no a double early delivery of mail, but a verification of your identity with a phone number.
