Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps protect your account by requiring two methods of verification when you log in: 

  1. Your email address and password.
  2. A security code that’s texted to your mobile phone number, or generated by a mobile authenticator app (like Google authenticator or Duo).
