Passwords get hacked all the time
2FA is the only way to be sure
Two-factor authentication, or 2FA, is an essential security measure for protecting online accounts against unauthorized access. With 2FA, users must provide two pieces of identification to access their accounts, typically a password and a temporary code sent via text message, email, or authentication app. This extra layer of security greatly reduces the risk of account takeover by malicious actors who may have obtained login credentials through phishing or data breaches. 2FA can prevent financial loss, data theft, and reputation damage caused by unauthorized access to accounts. It is recommended that users enable 2FA on all their critical online accounts, including email, social media, banking, and e-commerce platforms. By using 2FA, individuals and organizations can significantly improve their security posture and reduce the likelihood of successful cyber attacks.
