Multi-Factor Authentication is the practice of adding an extra authentication step - often requiring use of a separate device such as a smartphone. What this means for you is that even if your login credentials are somehow obtained by a third party, they still would not be able to log in without also obtaining your MFA device. Multi-Factor Authentication is essentially to any website owner who values site security.

Logging In with MFA

  • Enter your login credentials as normal
  • Open Google Authenticator on your phone (Android, iPhone) and enter your 6-digit code.
  • You're now logged in!

Setup Instructions

  • In the backend, go to My Account in the top right.
  • Check the Use Multi-Factor Authentication? checkbox.
  • Generate an MFA Secret and scan the generated barcode using Google Authenticator (Android, iPhone).
  • Enter two security questions and answers - these will be used when you don't have access to your phone.
  • Click Save at the bottom of the form.

Once set up, Google Authenticator will display a continually changing set of 6 digits. When you next log in, you'll need to enter the currently showing number.
