The feature increases the security of the account and prevents it from being hacked in the event of a password leak.

In the following tutorial, check out how to set up and remove Authy from your Free Market account. The procedure was performed on an iPhone 8 with iOS 12, but the tips also apply to users of Google-powered devices.
