Enabling 2FA provides an extra layer of security used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are.
Instead of gaining access immediately following the entry of a username and password, an additional verification code will be requested - generated by an authenticator app.
Once you enable 2FA, you’ll be given a Security Key to be used on your preferred Authenticator App, allowing you to generate the authentication code.
We are also rolling out SMS 2FA. In this case, codes are sent via text message to your phone number.
