Multifactor Authetication

(also called 2 FA)

Multifactor or 2FA (Second Factor Authentication) means using an extra method of securing accounts “authentication” in addition to a password. (If your password is hacked or compromised your account remains secure as it cannot be accessed without the ‘second factor’ to authenticate the password).

A combination of a strong password (using a Password Manager) and 2FA is the best way to protect your important online accounts (like email, social media and banking).

We recommend a combination of Yubikey and Lastpass Authenticator and Lastpass Password Manager.
