Learn whether the sites you visit protect your data.
Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is a way to keep your personal information secure online. By verifying that you are actually you, websites that use MFA help cut down on identity theft and loss of personal data.
If a website does not offer MFA, all an identity thief needs to do to gain access to your account is enter your username and password. MFA provides a next step by checking that you -- and only you -- are trying to access your information.
For example, a site may send a text message directly to your phone. This message contains a short number that you then enter into the website as part of the login process. Because the identity thief doesn't have your phone, they can't access your account.

This extension is designed to help you learn about the sites that you visit. The extension displays several important metrics about the MFA and encryption techniques a website offers.
Knowing which sites use multi-factor authentication and strong encryption practices can help you decide where to share your personal information.
