What is dual-factor authentication?
It’s a method of giving users access to a platform or service to protect it from other people who those users don’t want accessing or viewing their information. As the name suggests, it consists of two steps (factors). The simplest example of one-factor authentication is using a login and password to access a website or a tool. However, passwords have become less secure as they can be stolen or picked up, or your account can be hacked. That’s why having recipients give an extra layer of identification can boost your infosecurity. There are three types of two-factor authentication. After entering the password, users can be asked to provide something they own (like a bank card or other object), something they know (a PIN code, one-time password, SMS code, etc), or something they are (biometrics as individual physical characteristics).
Protecting documents with multi-factor authentication is important. Contracts, financial documents, and many other types of documentation are often confidential. Sharing them online with your partners, customers, or even within your organization must be secure. signNow understands that and has built a system for assuring you can secure your content. Invite recipients to sign your agreements and forms by emailing them and select Advanced sending options. There, you can set a password request, an SMS, a phone call to verify your recipient’s identity.
