What is two-factor authentication?

Add an extra layer of security with two-factor authentication (2FA). It provides a stronger security for your Enalyzer account by protecting it with both your password and your phone.

How it works

Logging in with your username and password is considered a single-factor authentication. 2FA adds an extra layer of security, in the case of Enalyzer an auto-generated 6-digit code. Therefore, logging into your account will work differently:

  1. Whenever you log into your account, you'll have to enter your username and password as usual.
  2. You'll be asked to enter a 6-digit verification code which is automatically by the authentication app you're using.

How it protects you

  • Adds a layer of protection. Without 2FA, you only have your password to protect your account. With 2FA, if someone gets a hold of your password, they'll still need your phone to get into your account.
  • Unique verification code. The authentication app will constantly generate new codes for you to use when logging in. Each code can only be used once before it expires.

How to set it up

  1. Go to my account and click username and password
  2. Click on configure two-factor authentication.
  3. Download and install one of the following authenticating apps:
    • Google Authenticator
    • Duo Mobile
    • Authy
    • Windows Phone Authenticator
  4. Open the authentication app, click on the + icon at the top right corner of the app, and scan the QR code available inside your account.
  5. Enter the 6-digit verification code and click enable.

Next time you log into your account, you'll be asked for your username, password, and authentication code. 

Important! In the case of you losing your two-factor access, we use your phone number as a backup. Please make sure the phone number you've provided us with is up-to-date.
