# Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a best practice that adds an extra layer of protection on top of your email and password. With MFA enabled, when you sign in to an EmailJS dashboard, you will be prompted for your email and password (the first factor), as well as for an authentication code from your MFA device (the second factor). Taken together, these multiple factors provide increased security for your EmailJS account settings and resources.
To enable MFA for your EmailJS account, please follow the next steps:
- Open the Personal Settings.
- Navigate to the Security tab, and press Enable MFA.
- Fill out the details of the MFA.
- Activate MFA
EmailJS does not charge any additional fees for using MFA.
# Virtual MFA Applications
Applications for your smartphone can be installed from the application store that is specific to your phone type.
- LastPass Authenticator
- Microsoft Authenticator
- Google Authenticator
- Other apps that are compliant with RFC 6238, a standards-based TOTP (time-based one-time password) algorithm
# Change MFA device
You can have only one MFA device assigned to you at a time. If you need to replace it for any reason, you must first deactivate the old device, then you can add the new device.
