As part of our commitment to keep your account and information secure we have implemented Two Factor Authentication
The article below explains what Two Factor Authentication is, how it works and how to make use of it.
What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Two-factor authentication adds an additional layer of security by introducing a second step to your login. It takes something you know (i.e.: your password), and adds a second factor, typically something you physically have (such as your phone). Since both are required to log in, in the event an attacker obtains your password two-factor authentication would stop them for accessing your account.
Why do you need it?
Passwords are increasingly easy to compromise. They can often be guessed or leaked, they usually don’t change very often, and despite advice otherwise, many of us have favorite passwords that we use for more than one thing. So Two-factor authentication gives you additional security because your password alone no longer allows access to your account.
How does it work?
Using time based tokens in addition to your regular username & password, you also have to enter a 6 digit code that changes every 30 seconds. Only your token device (typically a mobile smartphone) will know your secret key, and be able to generate valid one time passwords for your account. And so your account is far safer.
How do I set up Two-Factor Authentication?
Login to your my.rapidweb portal. Once logged in the top right hand corner you will see "Hello, John!" click the drop down and select Security Settings.
You will now be taken to the Two Factor Authentication Setup Process, from here simply follow the on screen prompts.
