What is Two-factor Authentication (2FA)?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) also called two-step verification, is a security process in which a user has to pass two different authentication methods to gain access to an account or a computer system. First factor is the basic thing you know: username and password, and the second factor are what you might have as unique like a (Smartphone, security token, biometric) to approve authentication requests.
