In an era of increasing security threats, protecting accounts is non-negotiable. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is one easy solution to enhance this protection.
MFA adds an additional layer of security to your login process, by requiring another method of authentication besides the regular password. These factors are usually one of:
- Something you possess: Smartcards, phones, cryptographic keys, etc.
- Something you know: Passwords, PINs, etc.
- Something you are: Biometrical features like fingerprints, facial or iris recognition, voice, etc.
With MFA even if your password is stolen or guessed by someone, they won’t be able to access your account without providing the additional factors. This protection is especially potent when combining factors of different types.
Although for someone it may sound cumbersome to go that extra step for MFA, it is a simple yet incredibly effective way to boost your security. So, take action today! Enable MFA on your accounts and enjoy peace of mind.
