Google Authenticator App by Saadaf Amin

Two-factor authentication (2FA)

2FA is the best choice at this moment to boost your various digital accounts security to detect a right user— establishing a secured access to an online account or computer system— that requires the user to provide two different types of information for log in properly.

The reasons why use Two-factor authentication

(2FA) is so important are— to protect your account from unauthorized log in attempt and stop hacker or someone who has already your username and password, they won’t be able to access your data without your permission.

The “Two-factor” name refers to using a second code within your password to create a new successful log in without any risk. Generally Authenticator Apps provide extra 2FA code for Android and iOS. The apps are simple but straightforward to persuade a computer system or online service that you are the right or wrong person to access controls on that page, so the system can properly detect if you have the rights to access the data services that you’re trying to access.

Username or password pair is the most authentication factor use in 2021 and since normally most accounts only require a password or alternative previous saved security code for access, most systems thus use single-factor authentication for security. But two-factor authentication ask for provide both a password and prove of your identity some other way to gain access.
