Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of protection in the authentication part of the login process. In the MFA process on the Sweet platform, a text message (SMS) containing a unique code is sent to your mobile phone. This happens after you enter your email and password, and you must enter the code you received before you can continue on to your account.
The purpose of MFA is to create an additional layer of verification that you are logging into your account--and not someone that may have breached your personal information security. You get an added level of security because you are authenticating your ability to login through something you know (your password) and through something you have (in this case, your mobile device).
Enabling multi-factor authentication is simple on the Sweet web platform. Simply follow these quick steps.
