    Why you should use 2FA for Riseup Mail?

    Riseup Mail is a secure email service that values privacy and security. However, even with their strong encryption and protection measures, it's always a good idea to enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) to add an extra layer of security to your account.
     By enabling 2FA, you'll be required to enter a unique code in addition to your password when logging in. This code is generated by an app like our Authenticator, which means that even if someone manages to steal your password, they won't be able to access your account without the code.
     In addition to protecting your account from hackers, enabling 2FA can also help prevent phishing attacks. These attacks often involve tricking users into giving away their login credentials, but with 2FA, the attacker would also need access to your phone or Authenticator app to get in.
     At our Authenticator, we take security and privacy seriously. We don't store any of your 2FA codes on our servers, and we use industry-standard encryption to protect your data. We also recommend using a strong, unique password for your Riseup Mail account and enabling any other security features offered by the service.
     Overall, enabling 2FA is a simple and effective way to add an extra layer of security to your Riseup Mail account. With our Authenticator app, it's easy to get started and keep your account safe.
