What is Multifactor Authentication?

Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a method of identifying users by presenting several separate authentication stages. Some of those stages could be Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP), Mobile verification, a hardware token, among others. 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) is the most used type of MFA.

Why is Multifactor necessary?

Use MFA to provide increased security to your critical applications, especially when abnormal situations are detected, such as login from a different device or location. MFA requires the user to have two or more types of credentials before being able to access an account. Even if your password is stolen, your account will remain safe.

Easy to implement

You can have MFA implemented in minutes! Just flip a switch to enable the feature, select your provider (Google Authenticator or Duo), and customize it. You can even use any MFA provider or build your own, and integrate them through Auth0’s extensibility.
