What is 2FA?

2FA is the introduction of a second type of authentication, the first and most common usually being your standard password. The issue with this is that, regardless of how complex and strong your password is, all it needs to be compromised is to end up exposed in some way. This could be through a data leak, or by falling victim to phishing.

By introducing a second form of authentication in this scenario, it doesn’t matter that the password is compromised. As the bad actor only has half of the information needed to access an account. This protects the account and gives the impacted individual time to change the password and restore full security back to their account. 

Using an authenticator app

There are a few different types of authentication methods that are used as the second factor. The most common is using an authenticator app like Google Authenticator or Authy. This is what hide.me vpn has implemented. 

Using these authenticator apps is easy. Simply download them to your mobile device and you can use them to scan a QR code to enter the account to your authenticator (or you can add it manually via a code). And from then on you enter the six-digit TOTP (Time-based one-time password) along with your regular password when you log in to your hide.me vpn account.
