    Why you should use 2FA for PyPI?

    PyPI is a popular platform for Python developers to share and distribute their packages. With so many users and packages, it's important to keep your account secure. That's where 2-factor authentication comes in.
     Enabling 2FA on your PyPI account adds an extra layer of security to your login process. Instead of just entering your password, you'll also need to enter a code generated by an app like Authenticator. This means that even if someone gets your password, they won't be able to access your account without the code.
     At Authenticator, we take security and privacy seriously. Our app uses industry-standard encryption to protect your 2FA codes, and we never store any of your data on our servers. Plus, our app is free and easy to use.
     Here are some tips to keep your PyPI account even more secure:
     - Use a strong, unique password for your PyPI account
     - Don't reuse passwords across multiple accounts
     - Enable 2FA on any account that supports it
     - Keep your Authenticator app up to date with the latest security patches
     By taking these steps, you can help protect your PyPI account and keep your packages safe.
