A service that strengthens the security of the traditional password method of online identification is two-factor or multi-factor authentication. You would typically submit a username and password if two-factor authentication wasn't available. However, when using two-factor authentication, you would be required to input a second form of identification, such as a Personal Identification Code, a different password, or even your fingerprint. After entering your username and password, you would be required to input more than two additional authentication methods under multi-factor authentication.
Hackers find it significantly more challenging to access your accounts and sensitive personal data when you use two-factor authentication.
