Two Factor Auth

You can optionally enable two-factor authentication for your account.

Before proceeding, you must have an authenticator app installed on one of your devices. You can use any authenticator app that supports the Time-based One-time Password algorithm (TOTP). We have tested and confirmed compatibility with the following:

  • Google Authenticator
  • Microsoft Authenticator
  • LastPass
  • 1password
  • Authy
  1. Click Enroll Into Two-Factor Authentication.

  2. Scan the QR code or manually enter the alphanumeric secret into your authenticator app.

    NOTE: These codes expire after 5 minutes.
  3. After scanning or entering the code, your authenticator app returns a 6 digit verification code. Enter this code and click Verify.

Once authenticated, you are provided 3 one-time use codes to use if you need to log in without your authenticating device. Write one of these down and keep it somewhere secure.

Click Disable Two-Factor Authentication to revert to password-only authentication. This is less secure, but you can re-enroll at any time.

IMPORTANT: Once enrolled, you can no longer use session token and cookie authentication with API keys. Use key and hash instead. For more information, see the PacketFabric API documentation.
