SB192 Does not disable MFA

Disabling MFA increases the risk of an unauthorised person gaining access to your account if they know your password.

Why is it important?

Multi-factor authentication increases account security from 50% to 99%. Disabling multi-factor authentication cuts security in half, significantly increasing the ease with which threat actors can breach accounts.
