2-Step Verification, also known as two-factor authentication (2FA), is an additional security feature that provides an extra layer of protection for your account in the event that your password gets compromised or stolen. By enabling 2-Step Verification, we can significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access and safeguard our valuable information.
