    Why you should use 2FA for York University?

    York University is a leading educational institution that offers a wide range of programs and courses to students. As a student or faculty member, you have access to a wealth of information and resources that are critical to your success. However, with the rise of cyber threats, it's important to take steps to protect your personal and sensitive data.
     
    
     One of the best ways to do this is by enabling 2-factor authentication (2FA) on your York University account. 2FA adds an extra layer of security to your login process 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 York University account is quick and easy. Simply go to your account settings and follow the prompts to set up 2FA. Once enabled, you'll be prompted to enter a code or use your fingerprint every time you log in.
     
    
     In addition to enabling 2FA, there are other steps you can take to protect your personal and sensitive data. Be sure to use strong, unique passwords for all of your accounts, and never share them with anyone. Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks, as these can be easily hacked. And always be cautious when clicking on links or downloading attachments from unknown sources.
     
    
     At York University, we take the security and privacy of our students and faculty very seriously. By enabling 2FA and following these security tips, you can help us keep your data safe and secure.
