Setting up Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on your TikTok account is the best way to prevent unauthorized access to your account. Social media breaches are all too common and passwords alone aren’t able to keep you protected from savvy hackers. With 2FA in place, you’ll have an extra layer of security so that you have greater control over access to your social platform. You can find more information about what 2FA is and how it works here.
