You may have heard of two-factor authentication, also referred to as dual-factor authentication or two-step verification. All these terms mean the same thing. It's a security process where users provide two different authentication factors to verify their identity when signing into various online accounts or applications.

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security on top of the primary single-step method, where you'd only use a password to verify a sign-in. So, in addition to entering a correct password when two-step authentication is implemented, you will need to provide another factor (like a numerical code) before you can perform certain types of actions. This verification helps ensure that you, and only you, can assess your account.

When setting up two-factor authentication, you will need to choose an email address or mobile phone number to send the verification code. Most verification codes expire after a certain period. Therefore, select your primary mobile phone number or an email address you will always have access to when logging into your account.
