Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor Authentication also know as 2-factor authentication, is an authentication method in which a system user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (factors).

These generally include something only the user knows (password) and something only the user has (a code generated by a personal device).

You only need to pick 1 of the options listed below to setup Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
