Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security of your user account. We want to prevent that a hacker can login using your credentials.
A study by Microsoft shows that Multi Factor Authentication can block over 99,9% of account compromise attacks. You can read the full article on Microsoft's website here.
The second layer in MFA means a hacker would need to steal your password along with your phone in order to access your account.
As a user you can choose to use between three authentication methods to receive the required confirmation code: via an authenticator app (recommended), an SMS message or a phone call.
We demand MFA if you want to login on a new device. That is how we help you to stay secure. Once a device has been registered a new MFA-request will not pop up again. This is the default setting.
