Using 2FA adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts by requiring you to enter a unique code in addition to your username and password.
This video explains the purpose of 2FA and the value it brings to your business.
What is two-factor authentication?
Two-factor authentication is a security process that requires two different forms of identification from the user to log in. This can be something as simple as a username and password, or more complex like a username, password, and one-time code generated by an app on the user's phone.
Why should I use two-factor authentication?
Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security for your online accounts by requiring something that you know (your password) and something that you have (a code generated by your phone, for example). This makes it more difficult for someone to hack into your account even if they know your password.
How do I enable two-factor authentication?
This varies depending on the site or service you are using, but typically you can enable two-factor authentication by going to your account settings and selecting the option to enable it. You may also be prompted to set up two-factor authentication when you first sign in to a new account.
Is two factor authentication a good option for businesses?
in general two factor authentication can be a very effective means of protecting your business data, customer data and systems from unauthorised access. It can help prevent hackers from gaining entry even if they manage to steal login credentials, and it can also provide an extra layer of security against phishing attacks.
