Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, two-step verification, TFA or multi-factor authentication, is a second layer of security that can be used on a website.
Using two-factor authentication decreases the likelihood of an attacker impersonating a user and gaining access to their account. The authentication method requires a password and username as well as an extra piece of information that only the individual should know.
Workplace supports two-factor methods such as SMS or authentication apps like Google Authenticator and Duo Mobile. Workplace also supports the use of security keys on approved internet browsers.
Learn how to enable two-factor authentication.

Security keys are part of an extra security feature called two-factor authentication. If you own a Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) compatible security key and add it as an authentication method, you can use it when logging into your Workplace account from a computer or mobile device we don't recognize. Using a security key adds another layer of protection to help keep your account safe.
Keep in mind security keys only work with certain web browsers and mobile devices, so you'll also need to have another authentication method, such as a mobile phone or verification code generator.
Security keys can only be used as a secondary authentication method. To set up your security key, you must already be using text message authentication or a verification code generator. You must also be logged into Workplace from a computer.

Using your Security Key
If you have two-factor authentication turned on and added a security key, the next time you log into Workplace from a supported browser on an unrecognized device you'll be asked to tap your security key.
If you don't have your security key or it isn't working, you can click Use a different method to log in using one of your other authentication methods, such as a mobile phone or verification code generator.
If you lose your security key, delete it from your list of approved security devices. You can do that by going to Security and Login Settings and deleting it from your two-factor authentication options.
