Two Factor Authentication is one of the way we voskcoins has taken to make sure your account is secured, in this guideline you will learn how to set up Two Factor Authentication on your account
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) works by adding an additional layer of security to your online accounts. It requires an additional log in credential – beyond just the username and password – to gain account access, and getting that second credential requires access to something that belongs to you.
Here's how two-factor authentication works:
The user is prompted to log in by the application or the website. The user enters what they know -- usually, username and password. Then, the site's server finds a match and recognizes the user. For processes that don't require passwords, the website generates a unique security key for the user. The authentication tool processes the key, and the site's server validates it. The site then prompts the user to initiate the second login step. Although this step can take a number of forms, users have to prove that they have something only they would have, such as a security token, ID card, smartphone or another mobile device. This is the possession factor. Then, the user enters a one-time code that was generated during step four. After providing both factors, the user is authenticated and granted access to the application or website.
