Keep your accounts safe. Use 2FA (2 Factor Authentication). When you log into your bank account, you may get a text message on your phone with a code you need to enter. That is and example 2FA.
Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to your account.
If your password is hacked, a password alone is not enough to pass the authentication check.
There are a few different ways to use 2FA.
For example, to use 2FA on your Gmail account, you have a few choices:
𝐀𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐩𝐩: You install an app on your phone, and then when you sign into your account you are prompted for a code that is generated in the app on your phone.
𝐕𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐨𝐝𝐞: This option sends you a one-time numeric code, either by SMS or voice call, that you enter to verify your identity.
𝐏𝐡𝐲𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐊𝐞𝐲: This is a small device you purchase that you connect to your device to log in.
Protect your accounts today.
Turn on 2FA on any accounts that offer it.
