Best Multi-Factor Authentication for Google Chrome

Using two-factor authentication with your Chrome browser for better online security

What is two-factor authentication?


Two-factor authentication, or 2FA, is a type of multi-factor authentication and adds an extra layer of security to online accounts by requiring an additional login step. After entering a password to log in, you’ll be asked to provide a security key which can come in the form of a numerical code, barcode, QR code, or other piece of information. Only by providing the right information will you be granted access to the account.

If a password is stolen or leaked online by a hacker and someone else is trying to log in to your account, they won’t be able to without the 2-factor authentication!

How does two-factor authentication work?

Provide login credentials

The first half of the authentication process involves you entering your account login and password.

Passcode is sent to mobile device

Your chosen authenticator app will generate a unique verification code on-screen as a QR code to scan or numerical code via text message. These tokens will vary across different 2FA apps.

Verify the token

Your mobile device will then prompt you to confirm the unique token. This can be done by scanning the QR code or entering the numerical string sent to your mobile device.

Why use two-factor authentication?

The right two-factor authentication app makes browsing with Chrome more secure, without slowing down your day.

Add extra protection

Worried about phishing attacks or malware? Two-factor authentication keeps hackers locked out.

“I like that LastPass is easy to use and intuitive. It integrates well with all websites and allows me to keep secure encryption for all my personal and work-related accounts. It allows me to organize folders, share with others, and only memorizing one master password for all of those while keeping encryption secure is a relief.”

Kenny Kolijn

Independant business coach

“I use LastPass both corporately and personally. It allows me to securely store and share passwords with my family and co-workers in separate environments and happily generates random secure passwords for me, which prevents me from re-using the same one.”

Erik Eckert

System administrator, MPE Engineering Ltd.

“If you deal with other people's information, as my company does, LastPass is a must. We use it to organize sensitive client credentials, which has never failed us. Its level of security offers us flexibility if we have a vendor or team member that needs access but don't want to share the actual password.”
