Why MFA / 2FA?
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires users to provide multiple pieces of evidence (or “factors”) to verify their identity. This can help to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and protect your personal information from being accessed by cybercriminals.
There are several reasons why you should use MFA:
It adds an extra layer of security to your accounts. Even if a hacker has your username and password, they will not be able to access your account without access to the additional authentication factor.
It helps to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts. If someone tries to log into your account and fails to provide the correct authentication factor, they will not be able to access your account.
It helps to protect your personal information. If a hacker gains access to your account, they may be able to access sensitive personal information, such as your financial or medical records. MFA can help to prevent this from happening.
It is relatively easy to set up and use. Many online services and apps now offer MFA, and it is usually easy to enable it for your accounts.
Overall, using MFA is a simple and effective way to protect your online accounts and personal information from unauthorized access.
