Two Factor Authentication allows and an extra layer of security to your account and helps you prevent hackers from logging into your account, even if they have your password. This extra security measure confirms users identity by using a combination of two different factors: 1) Password, 2) some other form of information known only to you. Two Factor authentication is also known as 2FA.
We provide Two Factor Authentication (2FA) service inside cPanel and WHM control Panel and also on our support portal. You can enable Two-factor Authentication for your account by logging into cPanel / WHM and clicking on Two-factor authentication APP.
Two-factor authentication requires two forms of identification:
- Your password.
- A generated security code by Authenticator APP.
When you enable 2FA, an application on your smartphone supplies a code that you must enter with your password to log in. When 2FA is enabled, without your smartphone, you cannot log in.
2FA requires a smartphone with a supported time-based one-time password (TOTP) app. We suggest the following apps:
