TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION (2FA)

Two-factor authentication (2FA) can be used to protect your account from unauthorized access by asking to enter an additional access code.
Two-factor authentication currently supports the use of an App authenticator or an authentication method via e-mail address.

Once two-factor authentication is enabled, you will need to enter the two-factor authentication method code you have chosen to be able to log in to your account.
You will be asked to enter the two-factor code the first time you log in after activating this feature, if you use a new device, if 30 days or more have passed since your last login or if you have deleted your browser cookies lately.
To activate two-factor authentication:

To use this system you will need an app, the recommended ones are:

Google Authenticator
LastPass Authenticator
Microsoft Authenticator
Authy

In your USER PANEL, click on the 2FA tab to view your security settings. At the bottom of the page, click on 2FA.

After you have scanned the QR code or entered the code, from your mobile phone you will have to enter the new unique code that will be provided to you to complete this procedure.
Once you have entered the code and pressed on "Activate" your account will benefit from this security system.
