Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security that makes sure that the users who login to any application or resource are who they say they are. This is normally accomplished by asking them to enter a secondary credential after they have provided their normal user name and password. The secondary credential could be a code send to their personal phone or a pre-specified personal identification code.
