Using multi-factor authentication (MFA) with a login ensures users are who they say they are when accessing their account. This extra layer of security requires the user to prove their identity in multiple ways to protect their data.
MFA combines the use of two or more independent credentials such as:
- something the user knows (a password)
- something the user has (cell phone verification)
- something the user is (biometric verification)
Using MFA provides multiple layers of authentication to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account.
