Authentication, authenticating, and authorize describe the process of identifying a person and making sure they are who they say they are. For example, a password is a basic method of authorizing someone. There are different types of authentication, including biometrics, entering a PIN (personal identification number), 2FA (two-factor authentication), or a picture password.
