    Why you should use 2FA for Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan?

    Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH) is a prestigious university that attracts students and researchers from all over the world. As a user of KTH's online services, you have access to a wealth of information and resources. However, with great access comes great responsibility. That's why we recommend enabling 2-factor authentication (2FA) to protect your account from unauthorized access.
     
    
     2FA adds an extra layer of security to your login process. Instead of just entering your username and password, you'll also need to provide a second factor, such as a code generated by our Authenticator app. This means that even if someone manages to steal your password, they won't be able to access your account without also having your phone or other 2FA device.
     
    
     At KTH, we take security and privacy seriously. That's why we've partnered with Authenticator to provide our users with a secure and reliable 2FA solution. With Authenticator, you can store all your 2FA codes in one place, making it easy to access them whenever you need them.
     
    
     To ensure the security of your KTH account, we recommend following these tips:
     
    
     - Enable 2FA: As mentioned above, 2FA is a powerful tool for protecting your account from unauthorized access. Make sure to enable it for all your online accounts, not just KTH.
     - Use a strong password: Your password should be unique and complex, with a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols. Avoid using the same password for multiple accounts.
     - Keep your software up to date: Make sure to install updates for your operating system, web browser, and other software regularly. These updates often include security patches that can help protect you from vulnerabilities.
     - Be wary of phishing scams: Phishing is a common tactic used by hackers to trick you into giving up your login credentials. Be suspicious of any emails or messages that ask you to click on a link or provide personal information.
     
    
     By following these tips and enabling 2FA with Authenticator, you can help keep your KTH account secure and protect your sensitive information.
