    Why you should use 2FA for Expo?

    Expo is a popular platform for building and deploying mobile apps. With so much sensitive information being stored on our mobile devices, it's important to take steps to protect our data. That's where 2-factor authentication comes in.
     Enabling 2FA on your Expo account adds an extra layer of security to your login process. This means that even if someone manages to get hold of your password, they won't be able to access your account without also having access to your phone or other trusted device.
     To enable 2FA on your Expo account, simply go to your account settings and follow the instructions. You'll need to download an authenticator app, such as our own Authenticator app, and scan a QR code to link it to your account.
     It's important to remember that 2FA is not foolproof, and there are still ways that hackers can gain access to your account. That's why it's important to follow good security and privacy practices, such as using strong, unique passwords, keeping your software up to date, and being wary of phishing scams.
     By enabling 2FA on your Expo account, you're taking an important step towards protecting your sensitive data. So why not take a few minutes to set it up today?
