    Why you should use 2FA for Brilliant?

    Brilliant is a popular online learning platform that offers courses in math, science, and computer science. With so much valuable information stored on the platform, it's important to take steps to protect your account from unauthorized access. That's where 2-factor authentication comes in.
     
    
     Enabling 2FA on your Brilliant account adds an extra layer of security to your login process. Instead of just entering your username and password, you'll also need to enter a unique code that's generated by an app on your phone. This means that even if someone manages to steal your login credentials, they won't be able to access your account without also having your phone.
     
    
     In addition to protecting your account from hackers, enabling 2FA can also help you avoid falling victim to phishing scams. These scams often involve fake login pages that look just like the real thing, but are designed to steal your login credentials. With 2FA enabled, even if you accidentally enter your login information on a fake page, the attacker won't be able to access your account without also having your phone.
     
    
     Of course, even with 2FA enabled, it's still important to take other security and privacy precautions. Make sure you're using a strong, unique password for your Brilliant account, and consider using a password manager to keep track of all your login credentials. And always be wary of suspicious emails or messages that ask for your login information or other personal details. By taking these steps, you can help keep your Brilliant account and personal information safe and secure.
