How do I use Two-Factor Authentication?
You can add an extra layer of security to your TenantCloud account by turning on two-factor authentication (2FA), which requires you to have access to your phone when you log in. This means even if your password is compromised or stolen, only you can log in to your account.
How does it work?
If you've decided to use two-factor authentication, every time you log in to TenantCloud you’ll be asked to enter a verification code along with your password. Because your password alone is no longer enough to access your account, two-factor authentication improves the security of your account and all the personal information you store with TenantCloud.
Once signed in, you won’t be asked for a verification code on that device again unless you sign out completely, erase the device, or need to change your password for security reasons.
Go to the "Settings" menu, which is located at the top right corner of your dashboard, to turn on two-factor authentication. Select Profile Information, scroll to the bottom of the page, and press "Enable" next to Two Factor Authentication:
Before you can set up 2FA on your account, you’ll need to download and install an authentication app on your device. TenantCloud 2FA can be used with most Time-Based, One-Time Password (TOTP) applications. Here are a few options to get you started:
Add a new account. In most applications you can do this by tapping the + icon. Scan the QR code by using your device's camera. On TenantCloud's configuration page, enter the six-digit verification code that your authentication app generates. To finish, press Verify Code.
That's it! From now on when you log in to TenantCloud, just open your authentication app and enter a code along with your password. The code is valid for 30 seconds, after which it will refresh.
Do not delete the QR code or access to your account will be lost.
It is possible to hide the authentication for two weeks by checking the “Do not ask me for 2 weeks" box:
If you enter the wrong verification code six times in a row, you will have to wait to try again:
