    Hello,

    Two-factor authentication helps to add additional layer protection to your login. Nobody will able to access your account without entering the unique code along with your regular password each time you log in. This unique code is generated by an app on your smartphones and changes every 60 seconds. I think this is the best option to secure your account.

      Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of protection by requiring you to enter a unique code along with your regular password each time you login. This code is generated by an app on your smartphones and changes every 60 seconds. Nobody can login without both your password and access to your smartphone to generate the code making it extremely effective at keeping out intruders.

          Two-factor authentication (often shortened to 2FA) provides a way of double checking' that you simply really are the person you're claiming to be when you're using online services, like banking, email or social media. it's available on most of the main online services.
          When fixing 2FA, the service will ask you to supply a 'second factor', which are some things that you simply (and only you) can access. this might be a code that's sent to you by text message, or that's created by an app.

          Why should I use 2FA?
          Passwords are often stolen by cybercriminals, potentially giving them access to your online accounts. However, accounts that are found out to use 2FA would require an additional check, so albeit a criminal knows your password, they will not be ready to access your accounts.
