Two-Factor Authentication: What Is It and Why Use It?

Two-Factor Authentication: What Is It and Why Use It?

And the more security layers you have, the better.

Enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) adds a potent layer, making it harder for hackers to get into your accounts.

In a typical 2FA scenario, after a user enters a password, they will receive a one-time code via SMS on their phone which they will have to enter to proceed.

Although no security is 100% foolproof, 2FA can dramatically cut down the chances a hacker makes it into one of your accounts.

If you need food for thought, here are some cybersecurity statistics that may alarm you.

  • 61% of people use the same password across multiple accounts.
  • 81% of breaches are a result of weak password.
  • 47% of phishing emails are successful.

When you consider stats like these, the typical network appears ripe for a successful hacker attack.

By enabling two-factor authentication, you take back the advantage.
