Two Factor Authentication
What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) works by adding an extra layer of security to your online accounts. It requires an additional log in credential – beyond just the username and password – to gain account access, and getting that second credential requires access to something that belongs to you.
Why are we making 2FA mandatory on our platform?
With Two-Factor Authentication (also known as two-factor Verification), you add an extra layer of security to your account in case your password is stolen. After you set up 2-Step Verification, you'll sign in to your account in two steps using: Something you know, like your password. Something you have, like your phone.
