TWO Factor Authentication adds an additional layer of security to your "ANY EMAIL ACCOUNT" by adding an additional verification to the login process to protect your account.
6-digit code will be generated by an app (GOOGLE AUTHENTICATOR) that is installed on your mobile phone changes every 20 seconds.
*Google Authenticator is a software token that implements two-step verification services using the Time-based One-time Password Algorithm and HMAC-based One-time Password algorithm, for authenticating users of mobile applications by Google.
This means that even if your password is somehow stolen, an attacker still cannot get into your account without also having access to your mobile phone. Because of this security benefit, we recommend enabling TWO Factor Authentication on your account.
In order to use TWO Factor Authentication you must have access to a second device with an authenticator application installed, through which you will receive verification codes to authenticate your login. Below you will find some different Authenticator application options. You must install one of these apps first on your mobile phone before you can use TWO Factor Authentication.
For Android iOS user can download app like Authy, Google Authenticator, FreeOTP and Toopher
