You can easily set up your ONFORM account to use two-factor authentication – which means your account will be more secure. We recommend all users activate this feature.
Enabling two-factor authentication greatly increases the security of your account. With two-factor authentication enabled, after you log in with your username (or email) and password, you will be asked for an authentication code before you can successfully log in. Two-factor authentication codes can come from an app that runs on your mobile device, an email that is sent to you after you log in with your username and password, or from a pre-generated list of codes.
You can easily activate two-factor authentication and change the settings on your profile screen.
Activating two-factor authentication
01 Log in to your account
If you haven’t set up two-factor authentication yet then you’ll log in using just your username/email and password.
02 Navigate to Users > Profile
03 Scroll down to “Two-Factor Authentication Options”
04 Check the “Enable” box for the options you want to enable
You can choose between “Mobile App”, “Email” and “Backup Authentication Codes” and can have any of them (or all of them) active.
05 Set which authentication option will be primary
Once you’ve chosen the authentication options you want to enable, simply click the “Primary” toggle next to the option you want to use by default. The primary option will automatically display once you’ve entered your username/email and password, and you can switch to a different method using the link/s at the bottom of the sign in form. This is handy if you don’t have access to the primary method (for example, you’ve left your mobile device at home).
06 And that’s it!
Your account will now be using two-factor authentication.
