Should I use 2FA?

< All Topics

A very quick and easy way to significantly enhance your personal security is to start implementing two-factor authentication (2FA) on your accounts. This additional security step ensures that no one can access your account by stealing your password or simply guessing it. The way 2FA works is upon access, a second step (the 2nd factor) is a quick message is sent to you (usually a 6 digit number) that needs to be entered. 2FA typically uses a phone number and a code is texted to you, or Google Authenticator is another service which generates codes in an app on your phone. 2FA adds a strong second line of defense to your online identity.
