Two-factor authentication (2FA) and how to enable it/ in application

2FA or two-factor authentication is when you protect your account with two factors or locks, creating an additional layer of security. 2FA increases the security of your account. Even if somebody guesses your password, they won’t be able to access your account.

Under the 2FA header, click the 2FA option you want to enable: Google Authentication, SMS Authentication or Email Verification.
