2-Factor Authentication

2-factor Authentication

We are all connected to the internet! We all love to surf the web, buy over the web and do lot many things over the web! So, it would be better if we secure our data! We require a better security system so that no one hacks our account and steals our information.

Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, two-step verification or TFA (as an acronym), is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi-factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they can have access to it.
 

So now it’s time to move on for 2-factor authentication. The 2-factor authentication is provided on almost all the big websites like Google, Dropbox, Yahoo, Facebook, etc.

This 2-factor authentication provides way more security than anything. It’s almost impossible to hack the person account with 2-factor authentication.

In the 2-factor authentication, we usually have to type in your password then, you’ll be asked for the another passcode, that could either be an SMS sent to your phone or the code in apps like Google Authenticator etc.

The 2FA can be explained in short as shown in the below figure:

Google Authentication looks as shown below when you add your accounts:

Let us focus on why is it difficult, consider that the code changes for every 30 seconds and the hacker has to crack this code in 30 seconds. Seems to be easy for a hacker right?? But no! He has to try 151,200 number of arrangements of the numbers in 30 seconds, which is practically impossible!

So, try the 2-factor authentication and stay safe and handle your data properly !! Let us stay safe and secure our data and let others know about the same!!

Stay tuned for more security updates!!
