    Why you should use 2FA for Proton?

    Proton is a secure email provider that offers end-to-end encryption to protect your messages from prying eyes. But did you know that you can further enhance your account security by enabling two-factor authentication (2FA)? 
     
    
     By enabling 2FA, you add an extra layer of protection to your Proton account. Even if someone manages to obtain your password, they won't be able to access your account without the second factor, which is typically a code generated by an app like our Authenticator. 
     
    
     Enabling 2FA is easy and only takes a few minutes. Simply download our Authenticator app, scan the QR code provided by Proton, and enter the code generated by the app. From then on, every time you log in to your Proton account, you'll need to enter the code generated by the app in addition to your password. 
     
    
     At our Authenticator, we take security and privacy seriously. We don't collect any personal information from our users, and all the data stored in the app is encrypted and protected by a master password. We also recommend that you enable a master password in the app to add an extra layer of protection to your 2FA codes. 
     
    
     In conclusion, enabling 2FA is a simple and effective way to enhance your Proton account security. By using our Authenticator app, you can store your 2FA codes securely and have peace of mind knowing that your account is protected by an extra layer of security.
