Cybersecurity Month: Why 2FA is Important
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an easy way to add a layer of security to any login credentials.
The “two” in the name refers to the fact that apart from something you know (your password), a valid login requires a 2nd factor, something you have, which could be an app, your mobile phone, your fingerprint, or even your face.
This extra layer renders a compromised password, even in the hands of a cybercriminal, inadequate to gain access to your account due to the missing second factor.
