The point to remember is that true 2FA systems use two independent forms of identification to authenticate users. Most 2FA systems use what the user knows and what they have (knowledge and possession) as “authentication factors”. It’s important to note that for an authentication system to be considered as “two-factor”, evidence of at least one of each factor is needed.
