Two-factor authentication

Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires more than one method of authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify the user’s identity for a login or other transaction. Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming users' claimed identities by using a combination of two different factors.

Multi-factor authentication could drastically reduce the incidence of online identity theft and other online fraud, because your password would no longer be enough to give a thief permanent access to their information.
