Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is way how to secure your NETIO Cloud account beyond username and password. 2FA increases the security of your account. Even if somebody guesses your password, they won’t be able to access your account.

Two Factor Authentication (2FA), sometimes referred to as two-step verification or dual-factor authentication, is a security process in which users provide two different authentication factors to verify themselves.

2FA is implemented to better protect both a user's credentials and the resources the user can access. Two-factor authentication provides a higher level of security than authentication methods that depend on single-factor authentication (SFA), in which the user provides only one factor -- typically, a password or passcode.

Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security to the authentication process by making it harder for attackers to gain access to a person's devices or online accounts because, even if the victim's password is hacked, a password alone is not enough to pass the authentication check.

Two-factor authentication has long been used to control access to sensitive systems and data. Online service providers are increasingly using 2FA to protect their users' credentials from being used by hackers who stole a password database or used phishing campaigns to obtain user passwords.


In the context of NETIO Cloud

NETIO Cloud offers its users to enable Two Factor Authentication. When enabled, you must register an OTP token to your authenticator app and you will have to provide OTP code every time you log in.

You can install Microsoft Authenticator (Android, iOS), Google Authenticator (Android, iOS, Twilio Authy (Android, iOS) or any other OTP compatible authenticator app.
