What is Authentication?

Authentication is the way we prove something to be true or genuine. In computer terms, authentication is the way a program or website validates the identity of the user. For some, this is as simple as a tracking cookie. Others may include passwords, fingerprints, or facial or voice recognition. In some cases, two-factor authentication may also require the user to input a code received by text or email.
