This section explains how to enable 2-step verification authentication to enhance authentication for guests.
2-step verification authentication is an authentication method that requires users to enter not only their e-mail address and password but also a unique verification code for every login. A verification code is valid only for one-time use and cannot be used for subsequent logins. This prevents unauthorized logins, even when a password is leaked to others. Guests receive their verification code at the e-mail address specified for their login.
