An authentication factor referred to as two-step authentication or dual-factor authentication, is a security process in which two different authentication methods are used to double-check users. CyfutureCloud offers two-step authentication while signing up.
2FA is implemented to protect user’s credentials and as well as resources. With two-factor authentication, you get a higher level of security than single-factor authentication. In SFA (Single-Factor Authentication) only one factor - a password or a passcode is used but in the two-factor authentication, method users authenticate by using a password and a verification code. It relies on the user providing a password as the first factor and the second factor as a security token or a biometric factor, such as - face recognition.
Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to the authentication process and makes it harder for attackers to gain access to online accounts or a person’s devices. Even if the attacker bypasses the password, it will be difficult for an attacker to pass an authentication check.
