Usernames and passwords are created to protect you from having unauthorized people access your accounts. However, relying on these alone to secure your online accounts is not safe. Data breaches have become a regular occurrence, and cybercriminals are always coming up with new ways to take over your accounts. To protect yourself, you must use Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).
In this article, we are going to be discussing the use of an Authenticator app as a reliable type of 2FA. We will also discuss Passwarden and why you should use this powerful tool to manage and keep your passwords safe.
