๐Ÿ‘ Something you know, Something you have

Liked Something you know, Something you have by Chris Betcher (chrisbetcher.com)

Theย something you knowย is the password, and yes itโ€™s still a good idea to have a strong password, something with enough length and complexity that is hard to guess but easy to remember.ย  But itโ€™s not enough. Itโ€™s just one factor.

The second factor isย something you have, or something you physically carry with you, such as a phone or touch key. Unless the hacker or foreign power actually has your phone, they canโ€™t access your data, even if they know your password.ย  Just like the two keys for the front door, they need both your password AND your phone at the same time. If they have both those things, you may just have bigger problems to deal with.
