    Why you should use 2FA for University of Groningen?

    The University of Groningen is a prestigious institution that values the security and privacy of its students and staff. That's why they offer 2-factor authentication (2FA) as an extra layer of protection for their accounts.
     
    
     Enabling 2FA is a simple and effective way to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts. With 2FA, you'll need to provide a second form of identification, such as a code generated by our Authenticator app, in addition to your password. This means that even if someone manages to steal your password, they won't be able to access your account without the second factor.
     
    
     Our Authenticator app is a secure and convenient way to store your 2FA codes. It uses industry-standard encryption to keep your codes safe, and you can easily back up and restore your codes if you switch devices.
     
    
     In addition to using 2FA and our Authenticator app, there are other security and privacy tips you should follow to keep your accounts safe. These include using strong, unique passwords for each account, avoiding public Wi-Fi when accessing sensitive information, and being wary of phishing scams.
     
    
     By enabling 2FA and following these tips, you can help protect your personal information and prevent unauthorized access to your accounts.
