What is two-factor authentication?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an optional additional layer of account security that helps to protect your account, even if your password has been compromised. 

With this additional layer of security, you’ll be required to enter a unique verification code from either a mobile authenticator application, such as Google Authenticator, or from a text message when you login to your account.

While nothing can guarantee complete protection against a security breach, setting up 2FA will make it significantly more difficult for any potential attacker to access your account.
