Set up 2FA in Microsoft and Facebook

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is the most effective way to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts. With 2FA, you add an extra layer of security that effectively prevents up to 99.9 percent of all cyberattacks. 2FA you may know from solutions where you receive a text message code that you need to enter in order to complete a login. You can also use an app that displays a time-limited code.
With Uniqkey's IAM, it becomes both easier for the company and the employee to use 2FA. Uniqkey's app works not only as a password manager but also as both a multi- and two-factor authentication app. Uniqkey can automatically fill in the 2FA key when you approve your login with Uniqkey.
