Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security process that requires more than one method of authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify the user's identity. This means that in addition to a password, a second factor of authentication is required in order to access a system or service. The purpose of MFA is to make it more difficult for unauthorized users to access a system or account, as it requires multiple methods of authentication rather than just a single password. Some common types of second factors that may be used in MFA include a security token, a biometric factor such as a fingerprint or facial recognition, or a code sent via SMS or email. MFA helps to increase the security of systems and accounts by adding an extra layer of protection.
