What is Two Factor Authentication (2FA)?

Two-factor authentication is a type of authentication process that requires two forms of validation for access. These two factors include something you already know (e.g., your password) and something you have (e.g., your mobile device).

Keep your account safe even if your password has been stolen. Two-Factor Authentication [2FA] via TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) adds a vital extra step on top of your username and password, and it costs nothing at dotFM.
