Two Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a method of confirming a user's claimed identity in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) of their identity via different mechanisms.

 

Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication.

 

Two-factor authentication (often shortened to 2FA) provides a way of 'double-checking' that you’re really the person you’re claiming to be when you log into your online accounts, such as banking, email or social media.

When you log into an online account with a username and password, you’re using what’s called single-factor authentication. You only need one thing to verify that you are who you say you are.

With 2FA, you need to provide two things – your password and something else such as a code sent to your mobile device or your fingerprint – before you can access your account.

This second level of authentication is not new, however, it is gaining momentum as accounts are left vulnerable with weak or poorly-secured passwords. A range of websites including Twitter, Paypal and WordPress have an optional second factor to their log-in processes, and online banking sites have used 2FA for a long time.
