Two-Factor Authentication

NOTE  Two-factor authentication may also be referred to as 2FA or two-step verification.

2FA is a security process used to confirm the identity of an authorized user, which (in the case of Workplace"Workplace" describes the Workplace service in its entirety.) consists of two authentication factors:

  • Knowledge factor: Workplace username and password
  • Possession factor: Either Authenticator app (recommended) or a SMS (text message)

Authentication by two independent factors decreases the risk of an intruder gaining access to and stealing your personal data or identity.
