Control Panel Enhancements 2 of 3

Next up in our line-up of some of the great new features in our recent control panel update is Two-Factor Authentication.

In the on-going pursuit of secure online applications, Two-Factor Authentication is the new standard for authenticating.

We have now added the ability to enable Two-Factor authentication for your account from the profile page.

We currently support any TOTP (Time-based One Time Password) token generator like Google Authenticator (available on Android, iPhone or Blackberry) or Microsoft Authenticator (available on Windows Phone)

To enable Two-Factor authentication on your account, first install one of the TOTP apps on your mobile device and configure it using the Secret Key on your profile page, then enter the current token from the app into the field on your profile page.

On subsequent logins after you have entered your username and password, you will be prompted for the token from the mobile app (This token changes every 30 seconds)
