Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security for your Statusbrew account. Whenever you log in to your account, after entering your email address and password, you will be asked for an authentication code from your smartphone using the Google Authenticator app.
By adding a second step to the login process, you can ensure that only you can log in to your account. Any malicious attacking effort will not only need your password but also access to your mobile device, in order to log into your account.
