Hello Everyone,

In this video, I show you how you can enable MFA on Ubuntu System-wide this installation will also work on any Debian based operating system.

The idea here is that you will have MFA enabled on your login, terminal, root prompt and anywhere that you would be asked for a password.

This may be a nuisance but is a way to increase the amount of security you put on say a root account or an account with elevated permissions.
