What does 2 step authentication do?
2 step authentication adds a layer of protection to your account. This protection when enabled helps prevent unauthorized access to your account. Two-step verification increases the security of your account by requiring you to provide an additional code to complete the login process. If your password is ever compromised, this verification will help prevent unauthorized access to your account.
