Enabling Multifactor Authentication

 

To use the multifactor authentication, this feature must be enabled from the user's account of a service or website that supports multifactor authentication. Usually, you can find the multifactor authentication settings in the user account security preferences. The name of the feature should be similar to two-factor authentication, two-step verification or multifactor authentication.
