What is 2FA?
2FA is a security feature that ensures that only intended users have access to your Dashboard, thus preventing malicious attacks or misuse of your sensitive business data.
How does 2FA work?
Two-factor authentication is a fantastic way to secure your client area as it makes you login using your traditional password (something you know) and a token generated from a device such as your smartphone (something you have). This means that even if someone knows your password, your account is still secured as he would need to generate a token from your smartphone.
How to enable 2FA?
