Once 2FA is enabled, you will be asked to verify your identity by entering an additional password code, which is provided either by SMS, email, or an authentication application. Protect against data breaches and secure your hybrid or remote workforce today.
- SMS authentication codes are sent by text message to a user’s mobile phone.
- Email authentication codes are sent to the email address on record.
- TOTP Authentication uses an authenticator application to generate TOTP (Time-Based One-Time Password) authentication codes.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a multi-authentication process that strengthens your access security by requiring two methods to verify a user’s identity. 2FA protects your business from cyber phishing, social engineering, and direct-password attacks.
Generally, 2FA is set up as “something you know” plus “something you have.” Something you know would be your net2phone username and password, and you have an email or smartphone, which you can use to provide the second authentication.
Recommended Authentication Apps
