What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?
You can implement two-factor authentication for your accounts so that unauthorized persons cannot access your account. Even if someone obtained your account password, they still need the two-factor verification code to access it. Usually, 2FA involves receiving a one-time verification code on your mobile device. During login, the Two-Factor code must be entered along with the password.
