Two-factor authentication (2FA), which is also sometimes referred to as two-step verification, is a security process in which the user provides two different authentication factors to verify themselves. This is done to better protect the user's credentials.
Two-factor authentication provides a higher level of assurance than authentication methods that depend on single-factor authentication, in which the user provides only one factor (such as via a password).
Two-factor authentication methods require users to provide a password as well as a second factor, this is usually a security token or in some cases a biometric factor (such as your fingerprint).
Enabling two-factor authentication is easy, just follow our simple set up guide.
