What is Two Factor Authentication?
Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is a feature that adds a second code you need to enter upon login in addition to your password. This means you will sign in with your username and password, and then you will also need to enter a code you receive either by text or from an app that generates these codes. The requirement of having the second physical device makes it very difficult for any unauthorized person to access your account. Enabling Two Factor Authentication is an important step to keeping your account safe.

For standard users in the Web Portal-

For standard users in the iOS or Android App-
Log in to the mobile application by using your username and password. Next, click the gear button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Then, click the Two Factor Authentication button.
The next screen will prompt you to choose the type of 2FA action you would like to use. Here is an example using SMS messaging. You can also use unique generated codes or Google Authenticator as other ways to complete the 2FA process.
