Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
This feature provides an additional layer of security to your data and helps prevent unauthorized access.
Two-factor authentication makes it harder for attackers to gain access to a person's device or online account. Even if your password was hacked, the password alone wouldn't be enough to pass the authentication check.
Two-factor authentication relies on a user providing 2 factors in order to login or register:
- A password.
- A 4-digit code, sent by email.
How to activate the 2FA?
To do this, go to Settings > Security and set the appropriate toggle switch.
There are 3 toggle switches for different roles:
- Two-Factor Authentication for Managers
- Two-Factor Authentication for Affiliates
- Two-Factor Authentication for Advertisers
When the toggle switch is turned on, two-factor authentication is applied to all users with this role who are already in the system, as well as the users who will register in the system for the first time.
It’s also possible to enable or disable the 2FA for an individual user.
To enable it, the administrator needs to open the edit form for the particular user (manager, affiliate, or advertiser). Alternatively, the user himself can find this option in the user profile.
How Does It Work?
When you first log in or register in the system, the system will generate and send you a 4-digit code by email, which you’d need to enter before logging in or registering in the system. The code changes every few minutes and can only be used once. You’ll need to repeat this process the first time you sign in on each new device.
Note: If, for whatever reason, you did not receive the verification code, you can request the code again using the [Resend Code] button.
