Gewijzigd op Thu, 02 May 2024 om 12:47 PM

Two-factor authentication, or 2FA, is an extra step to better protect your account. Enabling two-factor authentication improves the security of your PCextreme account and all your intellectual property. It’s an extra layer of security for your account that makes you the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows or tries to guess your password.

When you log in, in addition to the email address and password, you will be asked for an extra security code. This security code is generated by an App on your phone.

Download the authenticator app

There are multiple options. Two examples are Google Authenticator or Twillio Authy
