2 Factor Authentication Overview
Security is on just about everyone's minds these days: how do I protect my data? Is my password strong enough? What steps can I take to make my account more secure?
ProfitWell is proud to offer its customers Two-Factor Authentication, an additional layer of security for your account.
What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Password-based security is all about a secret — your password — that you know, and no one else does. Two-Factor Authentication, also known as Multi-Factor Authentication, adds something you have — your phone — to that equation.
Here’s how it works:
First, you will download a free two-factor authentication app to your phone (such as Authy or Google Authenticator). Using the app, you will scan a QR code within ProfitWell, which will get stored on your phone.
With this code, the app will generate six-digit one-time-use passcodes which you will be required to use every time you log in, after entering a valid username and password. Each code is only good for 30 seconds, and will only work from your phone.
