What is Multifactor Authentication (MFA)?
Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a security technology that requires multiple methods of authentication from independent categories of credentials to verify a user's identity for a login.
Typically, this simply means a website or app will ask you to provide an email and/or mobile phone so they can text you a security code to login (in addition to your normal username and password). To help better safeguard the sensitive information of your customers and your business DealerCenter is now requiring all account users to setup or verify multifactor authentication and password recovery settings.
This is a common practice you're likely already familiar with. For example, to login to your bank account you have to provide your username and password - and you're also sent a text or emailed a verification code to provide to login.
