Google Authentication, also known as two-factor authentication (2FA), offers an additional layer of security to users. Although the term "2FA" might not be familiar, you may already be using it on various platforms, such as your social media accounts.
When logging into your OrangeX account from a new device, an authentication code is sent to your phone via a text message. After entering the code, you can successfully log in. This process exemplifies two-factor authentication.
Unlike systems and services that only rely on single-factor authentication, which combines a username and password, two-factor authentication comes in various forms, such as SMS, emails, third-party authenticator apps, and even hardware keys. By implementing two-factor authentication, an additional layer of protection is applied to your account.
