Two Factor Authentication 2FA


What is Two-factor Authentication (2FA)?


Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) also called two-step verification is a security process in which a user has to pass two different authentication factors to gain access to an account or a computer system. First factor is the basic thing you know: username and Password and second factor is what you might have as unique like a (phone, security token). By enabling 2FA you'll add an additional layer of security making it harder for attackers to access the data through a person’s device or an online account. miniOrange provides 15+ authentication methods and solutions for various use cases.

Why use Two-Factor Authentication(2FA)?


For you Two-factor Authentication might seem like a hassle after all you need to take an extra step to log on to your accounts and websites. But in the fast paced digital world, traditional authentication does not work, the way cyber attackers are targeting sensitive customer data. Without 2FA, you could be leaving yourself vulnerable to cybercriminals who want to steal your data services and get personal information. Basically 2FA is used to protect your devices, accounts and data from security breaches, phishing and password brute-force attacks. With the 2FA security enabled from your side , knowing the password alone is not enough for cyber attackers to pass the security check. The following vulnerabilities are the main reason more and more people are moving to 2FA to secure their digital accounts and services.

  • 92% of organizations have credentials for sale on the Dark Web.
  • 81% of data breaches have been the result of weak or stolen passwords.
  • 90% of passwords can be cracked in less than six hours.

How does Two-Factor authentication (2FA) work?


  1. Firstly, the user navigates to the login page of the application or a website. For instance www.example.com/login
  2. User enters a username and password. User’s login credentials are checked by their respective server. This is the first factor of authentication.
  3. The site then prompts the user with the 2nd step authentication E.g Pop up asking for OTP sent over SMS /Email.
  4. When the user enters the second factor like OTP or Push notification it is checked against the database system if the second factor is correct.
  5. After successfully completing the 2nd factor authentication user is granted access to the application or a website.
