    Why you should use 2FA for NextDNS?

    NextDNS is a powerful DNS resolver that offers a range of features to enhance your online security and privacy. One of the most important steps you can take to protect your account is to enable two-factor authentication (2FA). By doing so, you add an extra layer of security to your account, making it much harder for hackers to gain access.
     Enabling 2FA on NextDNS is quick and easy. Simply download an authenticator app like ours and scan the QR code provided by NextDNS. From then on, every time you log in, you'll be prompted to enter a unique code generated by the app. This means that even if someone manages to steal your password, they won't be able to access your account without also having access to your phone.
     In addition to enabling 2FA, there are a few other steps you can take to enhance your security and privacy on NextDNS. First, make sure to use a strong, unique password that you don't use for any other accounts. Second, consider enabling DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) or DNS-over-TLS (DoT) to encrypt your DNS queries and prevent eavesdropping. Finally, be sure to keep your authenticator app and phone up to date with the latest security patches.
     By taking these steps, you can enjoy the many benefits of NextDNS while also keeping your account safe and secure. So why wait? Enable 2FA today and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your account is protected.
