We’re excited to announce the public availability of AWS Multi-Factor Authentication (AWS MFA), which offers customers additional capabilities to access and control their AWS accounts. AWS MFA provides an additional layer of security to the administration of your AWS account by requiring a second piece of information to confirm your identity. With AWS MFA enabled, you must provide a six-digit, rotating code from a device in your physical possession in addition to your standard AWS account credentials, before you are allowed to make changes to your AWS account settings. AWS MFA is an optional feature of AWS accounts and is easy to set up and use via the AWS web site. To learn more about and to begin using this important security feature, visit aws.amazon.com/mfa.
