What Is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a method of authentication that requires the use of more than one verification method and adds a second layer of security to user sign-ins and transactions. It works by requiring any two or more of the following verification methods:

  • A randomly generated pass code
  • A phone call
  • A smart card (virtual or physical)
  • A biometric device
