Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an amazing way of enhancing your account's security.
It's like having Iron Man right here, protecting your accounts!
2FA is an extra layer of security used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are.
First, users will be asked to enter their username and password as they would usually do. Instead of gaining direct access to their account, they will be asked for a second password. This second password is derived from one of the following categories:
- Something you know (your password which Myki autofills for you)
- Something you have (your phone, tablet, computer..)
- Something you are (biometric identification such as your fingerprint or an iris scan)
This way, even if someone gets hold of your passwords, they'd need to also access your phone or your biometric authentication which is highly unlikely!
Myki is a Password Manager & Authenticator. It is a full replacement for Google Authenticator, Authy or any other authenticator app! What is great about Myki is that it helps you manage both your passwords and 2FAs . Not to forget, it's completely free!
