Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security mechanism for verifying a user’s identity by requiring multiple authentication methods. Basic authentication, traditionally is a username and password. Instead, MFA requires additional methods to verify you are who you say you are. These methods may include a code from a smart phone, answering security question, facial recognition and so forth.
MFA is an effective way to provide enhanced security and confidence for log in. Traditional username/password combination can be easily lost or hacked. MFA creates multiple layers of security to help increase the confidence the user requesting access is actually who they claim to be. We explore this topic in depth in a later section.
