2FA (Two Factor Authentication), or Two Step Verification, is an authentication mechanism that protects all your valuable online accounts from security breaches. This security method adds an extra factor in the login procedure to make the account login secure. With 2FA, you require a unique verification code or OTP; the second factor, along with your secret password; the first factor, to gain access to your account.
