Question

Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type of multi-factor authentication system.It is basically a  is a layer of security designed to prevent someone from accessing your account, even if they have your password.It verifies using a random sequence of six numbers.It is also known as two-step verification or TFA (as an acronym).One code lasts for 30 seconds, within the time you have to put the exact code on required application or sites.Evan Twitter’s, Apple’, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon have had it for a while.Regarding vulnerability, nothing is 100% safe.But its authentication much safer and harder to breach.It can be hacked if someone gains access to your 2FA device, a malicious application like a trojan horse that you install on your device steals your 2FA data.But that is rare, So not to worry about.
