Use the Two-Factor Authentication using Time-based One-Time Password

This authentication option get's it's second factor using a time based algorithm. Your mobile phone can be used to generate the codes. If you don't already have an app that can do this, we recommend Google Authenticator which is available for iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices.

In other words... after you enter in your normal username and password for the billing area, you would then need to enter in the code that is being asked for by your phone using Google Authenticator.  It's like having a key to enter in your house, but the key changes every 30 seconds.  This way if someone ever got a hold of your username and password, they would still not be able to gain access without the second code.  BETTER SECURITY! 

You may activate this under your account security settings.
