01. What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an added security feature that protects your account over and above just using your username and password. Even if a hacker gets access to your username and password, 2FA will prevent access to your account. Basically, it is a method of confirming a user’s digital identity on their online accounts using two different authentication factors as a combination.
The process is simple after you log in to an account with your username and password, you will be asked to enter a 6-digit code that is refreshed every 30 seconds on your two-factor authentication app. This ultimately prevents unauthorized access to your account even if your password has been compromised.
