What all of this about?

As it was mentioned, now 2 methods are supported by Joomla, but this number could be more. The implementations are different, google's one needs an app to your smartphone, YubiKey is working with a hardware, need to press a button in the dedicated USB key, to get the secret code. Both of the methods are totally safe, and you can choose both of them.

You can enable this feature in the plugin manager. There are 2 plugins, for the 2 methods, and got a dedicated group in the plugin manager, called twofactorauth. Just enable the selected plugin, and the users will be able to add their secret codes in their profile page. After that, they can be login to your site only if they filled up the secret code input field too.
