How to enable 2 Two-Factor Authentication

Twofactor authentication (2FA), sometimes referred to as twostep verification or dualfactor authentication, is a security process in which users provide two different authentication factors to verify themselves. This process is completed to increase the protection of both the user’s credentials and the resources the user can access.

To enable two-factor authentication sign-in to FortKnoxster web app.

Click Settings in the left dashboard menu

Choose Two-Factor Authentication

Click Enable

Type in your password and press continue.

Next step, you will be asked to scan the QR code using your Authenticator App. If you do not already have it installed, you can download it here.

Once scanned please input the 6-digit security code and press activate.

IMPORTANT!!

Please make sure you copy your backup code and keep it in a secure place. Backup codes are used to restore 2FA in case of loss or theft of the device where the app is installed.

Click Done.

Now you have 2FA activated on your FortKnoxster account.
