What is two-factor authentication (2FA) and why should I enable it?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an extra security measure that helps protect your account against usurpation and theft of credentials by third parties.

Enabling 2FA on all web services that have the option is a good practice that you should adopt, especially in applications that contain sensitive information, such as your social networks or work tools (e.g. Github, Heroku, Google, etc).

To enable 2FA, you can use authentication applications, such as Google Authenticator, Authy, or 1Password, which generate codes that expire in about 10-30 seconds.

At Get on Board you can activate 2FA quickly and easily, allowing you to protect your valuable and sensitive company account data. It is recommended that all members of your team activate 2FA (and get into the habit of doing so in all the tools and applications they use regularly and Get on Board).
