About 2FA for Confluence: U2F & TOTP

Information is hard currency, where high-level cybersecurity measures become increasingly important, despite the company size. When it comes to projects, sensitive or confidential data need to be safeguarded from threats. For example, highly sensitive data such as health records, or other personal information, must be protected at any cost. 

Multi-factor Authentication, also known as MFA or multi-step verification, adds another security layer by complementing username and password with a unique security code that is immediately accessible only to a certain user. Generally, such code is sent to any device which you have always on hand. As a user, you can decide which second security factor is more convenient and suitable for you, and you can change it anytime. Such a two-factor authentication method can be easily called a combination of "something you have and something you know”.
