Multi-factor Authentication(MFA) or Two Factor Authentication (2FA) as it’s sometimes called is a security feature combines something you know (your email address and password) and something you have(an app on your device creates a code).
The reason MFA is so effective is because your password is no longer all you need to access your account. In order to gain access you need two forms of identification which slows down any potential breaches to your accounts.
We recommend that all of our customers use MFA for all services that contain confidential or private information that support it.
Where to Start
Most companies with Multi-factor Authentication solutions have easy to understand guides that will help you set it up for your account.
