What is 2FA?
2FA (Two-factor authentication) is an additional protection that ensures the security of online accounts beyond the username and password. At LoyJoy we always look for ways to improve the security of accounts and data. We adopted a new technology to get rid of passwords which are often forgotten and also used for many accounts.
