two factor authentication

What is two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication strengthens access security by requiring two methods (also referred to as factors) to verify your identity. These factors can include something you know – like a username and password, plus something you have – like a smartphone app to approve authentication requests.

2 factor authentication protects against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.

How it works?

Two-factor authentication provides unambiguous identification of users by means of the combination of two different components. These components may be something that the user knows, something that the user possesses or something that is inseparable from the user.

Good example of something that the user possesses is moble phone or smartphone. Second part of secret password can be sent to their mobile device by SMS or via a special app.


Dynamically generated passcodes are safer to use than static log-in information


No additional tokens are necessary
