What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication (2FA), also referred to as multi-factor authentication or MFA, is a feature that improves security by requiring two methods to verify your identity. These methods can include something you know - like a username and password - plus something you have - like a smartphone app - to approve authentication requests making your login have “two steps” for added protection.
