How to do 2FA right: Getting started with two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) used to seem like something reserved for spy movies or political thrillers — the sort of thing Mission Impossible’s Ethan Hunt needs to use to access his assignment before it self-destructs. But that’s not the case anymore. Virtually all of us are using 2FA on a daily basis, whether that’s biometric 2FA on our devices (fingerprint or facial recognition) or the common one-time passwords that are obtained via SMS or an authenticator app.

Our accounts are just too valuable for hackers to ignore. Even a compromised email account can be a stepping stone to gaining access to financial accounts and robbing you of your hard-earned money while creating a nightmare scenario for you. Although movies depict a hoodie-clad hacker with fingers flying furiously over the keyboard, the reality is that according to the 2021 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report the overwhelming majority of security breaches (85%) involve a human element. 2FA is the best way to combat this kind of attack.
