What is Two Factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security process that requires users to provide two different authentication factors to verify their identity before granting access to an online account or system.

  2. Something you have: This involves a physical item that the user possesses, such as a smartphone, a token generator, or a smart card.
  3. Something you are: This refers to biometric data, such as fingerprints, retina scans, or facial recognition.

By requiring two different types of authentication factors, two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security, making it more difficult for unauthorized users to gain access to sensitive information or accounts, even if they have obtained one of the authentication factors.
