    Why you should use 2FA for Read the Docs?

    Read the Docs is a popular platform for hosting documentation for open source projects. With so many people relying on this platform for important information, it's crucial to ensure that your account is secure. That's where 2-factor authentication comes in.
     Enabling 2FA on your Read the Docs account adds an extra layer of security to your login process. Instead of just entering your password, you'll also need to enter a unique code generated by an app like Authenticator. 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.
     In addition to protecting your account, enabling 2FA can also help protect your personal information. By requiring a second factor for login, you're making it much harder for hackers to gain access to your data.
     Of course, even with 2FA enabled, it's still important to follow other security best practices. Make sure your password is strong and unique, and avoid using the same password across multiple accounts. And always be wary of suspicious emails or messages asking for your login information.
     Overall, enabling 2-factor authentication is a simple but effective way to improve the security of your Read the Docs account. So why not take a few minutes to set it up today?
