    Why you should use 2FA for Stanford University?

    Stanford University is a prestigious institution that values the security and privacy of its students, faculty, and staff. One way to ensure this is by enabling 2-factor authentication (2FA) on your Stanford account. 
     2FA adds an extra layer of security to your account by requiring a second form of authentication, such as a code sent to your phone or a fingerprint scan. This makes it much harder for hackers to gain access to your account, even if they have your password. 
     Enabling 2FA on your Stanford account is easy and only takes a few minutes. Simply go to the Stanford University IT website and follow the instructions. Once enabled, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your account is much more secure. 
     It's important to remember that even with 2FA enabled, you should still take other security and privacy precautions. Make sure to use a strong, unique password for your account and never share it with anyone. Also, be wary of phishing scams and only enter your login information on the official Stanford website. 
     By enabling 2FA on your Stanford account, you're taking an important step towards protecting your personal information and ensuring the security of the Stanford community.
