We are all used to logging in to our accounts with a username and password. Whether it’s to access your computer, your email, or your local library website. Usernames and passwords have served us well. Nowadays though, there are more and more additional steps or actions that we are being asked to take to safely conduct our business online. 2-factor authentication, also known as 2 step verification, is one of the main methods that is promoted to help add additional security to our logins.
