Two-Step Verification requires you to enter a six-digit code while logging into Vista Social. This extra layer of security ensures that the password is not the only security measure on your account. As passwords get misplaced or sometimes even guessed by hackers, 2FA verification will ensure that you are protected against password hacks.
