What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA) for macOS login?

Apple MacOS Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a type of authentication that requires a user to provide two or more (mulitple) verification factors in order to gain access to data/resources/system,etc. In an identity and access management (IAM) policy, this type of MFA/2FA security measure is more effective than a single password and is a must have for all organization looking to increase the security for their sensitive data and information.
A Multifactor authentication (MFA) method requires the user to authenticate themselves using two or more (multi) factors before accessing company resources, applications, servers, macOS local machines, SSH access, Remote desktop protocol (RDP), or VPNs. Users are required to submit extra verification factors in addition to their login (username) and passwords when Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA) is enabled on those systems. These second-factor techniques might include Google/Microsoft authenticator, OTP via SMS, OTP over email, push notification, and many others.
With Multi-factor authentication (MFA) , an unauthorized person is more likely to have difficulty accessing a target, such as a location, a computing device, a network, or a database. Utilizing MFA/2FA aims to increase security and provide a layered defence so that, even if one factor (username-password) is stolen or a targeted cyber attacker manages to get past one barrier, they still have at least one more to overcome before successfully accessing the real targeted device. When opposed to ordinary username passwords, the second barrier is typically more difficult to get past.
