Your platform may offer or require two-factor authentication (2fa) to improve user login security with an additional authentication code. For platform configuration instructions, see Configure two factor authentication.

Before you begin:

  • To use Google Authenticator to obtain the codes, install the Google Authenticator app on your cell phone. 
  • To use email authentication to obtain the codes, check that you have a valid email address in your user account on the platform.

To enable two-factor authentication for your user account, do these steps:

  1. Click on the name or icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and in the username menu, select Two-factor authentication.
    From the username menu, select enable two-factor authentication
  2. Select the authentication method and click Enable
  3. Copy the backup codes from the bottom left-hand corner of the configuration window to a secure place. You can use these codes to log in to the platform if the authentication cycle fails
    • The platform will display backup codes ONCE only
  4. Authenticate according to your selected method
    • For Google Authenticator, use the Google Authenticator app on your cell phone to scan the QR code. Google will supply a verification code in the app. During login, the platform will request the authentication code from the app. Enter the code in the field below the password
    • For email, during login, every time you enter your user name and password to log in, a code will be sent to the email address registered in your Abiquo user account. Enter the code on the login dialog
