Cyber attacks against companies and individuals are as common as ever in this digital age. A one-step sign-in process raises those chances even more. 2FA is the solution to fight this, as it adds an additional layer of security to protect sensitive data and accounts.

Without 2FA, a single password is the only barrier standing between a cyber attacker and an account, making the account vulnerable to various forms of cybercrime. By implementing 2FA, businesses can significantly reduce the risk of account compromise and data breaches, thereby protecting the company’s assets and its users’ personal information.

By using 2FA admins must provide two different authentication factors to gain access to their accounts, which makes it more difficult for unauthorized individuals to access an account, even if they have managed to obtain the password or mobile device to retrieve the PIN code.

How 2FA Works

System admins will need to enter a username and password and then will be directed to add an additional temporary PIN code which will be sent to their mobile device via text message.

How to Enable 2FA?

  1. Click on your name in the top-right corner of the screen.

  2. Choose Settings.

  3. Navigate to the Security tab

  4. Select the option "Enable 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) for all admins when accessing the dashboard"

*Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is available from the Enterprise Plan*
