Multi-Factor Authentication – MFA

What does MFA and 2FA mean?

Mutli-Factor Authentication (MFA) is the act of utilizing a secondary authentication method to help increase security.

Instead of relying on a single form of user access authentication, MFA helps increase security by requesting a second form of validation from a user when trying to access a secure site or application.

Also known as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), MFA is becoming more and more commonplace and will often send links to user’s stored mobile phone numbers and or a secondary email address for increased security.

MFA can dramatically decrease the effectiveness of spam and bots on your application or secure site and helps deter malicious people and software.
