Two-Factor Authentication: add double security to your profile

August 07, 2019

What is Two-Factor Authentication

Two Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA and multi factor authentication, is a security process  in which the user provides two authentication factors to verify their identity. It requires not only a password and email/username during logging in, but also a piece of information that the user has on them and can access immediately.

Why you need it

In today's world of increasing digital crime and internet fraud everyone knows how important the online security is.

Using a username and email along with a piece of information that only the user has access to makes it much harder for intruders to gain access and steal that person's personal data or identity. And as in their TenantCloud profiles, landlords usually store personal and financial information, we recommend using 2FA to improve to the maximum the security of your account.

Therefore, for years, Two Factor Authentication has been the most valuable advice in personal cybersecurity.
