What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Have you heard of Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?  If you do online banking, you may be already using it and just didn’t know it was called Two-Factor Authentication. 

Today’s standard security procedures have only required a simple username and password which has become increasingly easy for criminals to gain access to a user’s private data. Using a Two-Factor Authentication process can help to lower the number of cases of identity theft on the Internet, as well as phishing via email, because the criminal would need more than just the users name and password details.
