Two-factor Authentication, also known as 2FA is a type, or subset, of Multi-factor Authentication. Multi-factor authentication is a method of confirming identity using by combination of two or more claimed identities. 2FA is a method of confirming users’ claimed identities by using a combination any two different factors from below:

something they know

something they have

something they are
