Multi-factor authentication

Definition: a security method that requires users to provide two or more types of verification. Usually something you remember, like a password and something you physically hold on your person such as a phone.

Other examples include a PIN code and a fingerprint scan, or an SMS verification. This adds an extra layer of security to protect against unauthorised access.
