What is MFA?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) offers robust security against digital threats and significantly enhances the login process by requiring users to verify their identity using additional methods beyond just their password.

By integrating two or more factors for authentication, MFA provides an added layer of protection to your account. In this case, MFA involves two steps to ensure your identity: one is by entering your password, and second, by confirming your identity through a code or push notification sent to your mobile phone. This two-step verification process helps safeguard your account against unauthorized access and strengthens overall security measures.
