What is MFA and what is TFA?
MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) and 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication) are often used interchangeably, but technically there is a difference between the two.
Using two factors of authentication to verify a user's identity is known as 2FA, a subset of multifactor authentication. A security token or a text message with a verification code is typically required in addition to something you know (like a password).
Two or more factors of authentication are used in multifactor authentication to verify a user's identity. It could be something that you know (like a password), something you have (like a security token or a mobile device), or something you are (like fingerprints or facial recognition).
So, while 2FA uses two factors of authentication, MFA is more.

What is Passwordless Login (Sign-in) (Authentication) to Joomla:-
Passwordless Login (Sign-in) (Authentication) allows users to log in without the need of remembering a password. Instead of a conventional username and password, users enter their mobile phone number or email address to receive a one-time code (one-time password) or link on their phone number or their email address, which they can then use for login.
