Setting up two-factor authentication (2FA)
How setting up 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) can help protect your online accounts, even if your password is stolen.
What is 2FA? An extra layer of security that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand - such as a code.
This guidance from National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) explains how you can set up two-factor authentication (2FA) on your important online accounts.
Doing this makes it harder for criminals to access your online accounts, even if they know your password.
