Secure your account with two-step authentication

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.22.4″ text_font=”Average Sans||||||||”]

Two-step authentication (also known as two-factor authentication) provides a more secure login process because when you (or anyone) attempts to sign in, you’ll have to provide the following information:

  • The account password.

  • A single-use authorization code generated by a mobile app or an SMS text message.

This is like a cash withdrawal machine at the bank, which requires both a debit card and a personal identification number (PIN). The difference here is that you’ll have to use a different authentication code every time you sign in, because an authentication code expires after it’s used.

Two-step authentication can be set up for all accounts, but the account owner can’t enable it for staff members. Staff members need to set it up for their own accounts.
