Two factor authentication for extra security
Nobody is waiting for their account to be hacked. Fortunately, we now offer two-factor authentication for extra security. Completely optional, of course.
How does two-factor authentication work?
As usual, a username and password are requested when logging in. If the details are entered correctly, a code is requested as an extra step. With the correct code from Google Authenticator, the user is successfully logged in and admitted to the system.
To set two-factor authentication, the user must go to his profile and click the "Enable" button. The user will first receive a confirmation warning.
After confirmation, the user receives a QR code to be scanned with the Google Authenticator app. The app can be downloaded via Android Play Store or IOS App Store. The app stores a code when the QR code has been scanned with the Google Authenticator app. That code will always be asked for when logging in.
If the code has been lost, a restore code can be used. The system provides five unique recovery codes. Store these recovery codes in a safe place. A restore code can be used once. For new recovery codes you can always click on the "Generate new recovery codes" button.
