Two-factor authentication

Phones, computers and appliances all store vital information. Passwords are one of the first steps to protecting that information, but you can make login information more secure by pairing the password with another factor. You may have a smartphone, and you can prove you have the phone by reporting back the PIN code that was sent to it in a text message. You could also include your fingerprint or other biometric data. When two of these factors are combined to secure an account it is called two-factor authentication.
