Your Data is Valuable ! Protect your account with Multi-Factor Authentication App and Improve Security


We have talked about Cyber Security, the benefit of Passwords, and Multi-Factor Authentication in the previous article. Today I will explain and demonstrate an additional layer of security to protect different accounts by using the Authenticator Applications. Let me add a few points about the authentication for the new readers.

Different Authentication Methods

Single Factor : In this method, Users verifying only a single matching content for gaining access and this one is the basic level of security.

Example: Authenticate using Username and Password

Two Factor Authentication: When compare to Single Factor, It is more secure and Users need to verify additional matching content to gaining access.

Example: Password Authentication + OTP Verification

Multi-Factor Authentication: In this method, the user needs to submit multiple matching content to gaining access to the data or account.

Example: Password + OTP + Fingerprint

Note: Simply we can use the term as MFA for every Two Factor Authentication but remember MFA has needed more than  additional two or more (1+1+1 or more) matching content.

There are many authentication application available, Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator etc. All are working based on an algorithm, i.e.  Time-based One-time Password Algorithm and HMAC-based One-time Password Algorithm.
Advantage of some Authenticators
