Cracking a password is often easy for hackers and they get access to restricted resources.
However, Two-step verification does not let the hacker reach the data. The hacker at best, may figure out your password but he won’t be able to penetrate your system further because of the unique generated code which remains active only for a very short period. Without the knowledge of the generated code, it is next to impossible for any hacker to get access.
