Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a crucial tool for securing online accounts. However, several myths surrounding MFA can lead to some companies not deploying it. These include MFA being too complex, MFA only being necessary for high-risk accounts, MFA slowing down login, MFA being foolproof, and it’s okay not to use MFA on trusted networks. In this article, we address and debunk all these myths.
