What is two factor authentication? In this short video, we'll explain what two factor authentication (also called 2FA) is, and how you can use it to protect your most important online accounts.

- Two factor authentication (2FA) is an additional layer of security beyond your password.
- 2FA is recommended for your most important accounts—like email, banking, and social media
- When 2FA is turned on, even if someone has your password, your accounts are protected by a one-time code sent to your email or phone to verify you are who you say you are!
