With all the recent news surrounding privacy breaches, Hydro Authenticator is a tool that helps sites, and, subsequently, the users on those sites, to remain as secure as possible. The platform gives businesses an easy-to-implement two-factor authentication system that's run using blockchain technology, ensuring complete security.
Two-factor authentication, also known as 2FA, is a form of preventing the theft of users' information through fraudulent account use. When users first set up their account with a given site, they also provide their mobile phone number. Then, if the site gets logged into from an unfamiliar IP address, it will send a code through a text message, and the user can only log in if they enter the correct code. 2FA is becoming increasingly common with big sites that have the resources to implement it themselves, but Hydro Authenticator lets any site use that level of security.
