Two factor authentication (2FA) is a great enhanced security feature when securing your online accounts, but relying on text messages to receive your 2FA codes can be the weak link in the chain.
Many online services offer 2FA as an extra layer in your security defences, ensuring people can’t break into your account even if they know your login and password. It works by demanding extra proof of your identity when you log into your account from a new device for the first time.
