Two-Factor Authentication Now Available

We are happy to announce this long awaited security feature which is now available for all accounts as of today! Two-Factor Authentication (also known as 2FA) adds an additional layer of security by adding a second step to the login process. It takes something you know (i.e. your password) and adds a second factor, typically something you physically have (such as your phone). Since both are required to log in, the threat of a leaked password is lessened.

One of the most common and simplest forms of Two-Factor Authentication is Time Based Tokens. With Time Based Tokens, in addition to your regular username & password, you also have to enter a 6 digit code that re-generates every 30 seconds. Only your token device (typically a smartphone app) will know your secret key and be able to generate valid one time passwords for your account. We recommend enabling this feature.

If you would like to setup 2FA for your account, take a look at the article Enabling Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for Account Login in our knowledgebase.
