2FA (two-factor authentication) increases the security of your account by requiring two forms of authentication: your password and an expiring token, also called an OTP (one-time passcode) or 2FA code. In this video, @gardiner_bryant shows how to follow the security principle of authenticating with something you know (a password) and something you have (the device used to generate the token).
