Two-factor authentication for extra security online
Handy Tech Tips
Two-factor authentication (known as multi-factor authentication) provides an extra layer of protection in the log-on process.
It combines 'something you know' (a password) with 'something you have' to allow access. If either one fails, access is denied. Even if someone discovers your password, they still can't access or log on to your account without the second method of authentication.
Most online services such as Office 365, Gmail and Facebook support two-factor authentication - which can be very effective for protecting your identity when online.
