Multi-factor authentication (MFA) - sometimes referred to as two-factor authentication (2FA) - is a multi-stage verification method which adds additional layers of security to your account.
When enabled for your Good Grants account, it adds a second verification method using an authenticator app or SMS. This means that if someone wants to hack into your account, they not only need to steal your password, they would also need to steal your mobile device.
We recommend enabling MFA for your own account and encouraging your users to do the same. Setting it up is very easy.
