Want to make sure your account is extra secure? ThreatSwitch offers Two Factor Authentication (2FA) to ensure you are the only one accessing your account! When 2FA is enabled, you will be prompted to enter a security code that is sent to your email address associated with your account. Follow the steps below to enable two factor authentication (2FA) to your account.

How do I enable 2FA?

  1. Log into your ThreatSwitch account.

  2. Click 'Profile' located in the bottom left corner of toolbar. From there select 'Security'.

3. The next screen gives you the option to select 'Enable Two Factor Authentication'.
4. After selecting this option, you will receive an e-mail that will contain a code that you will use to enter in the pop-up box in ThreatSwitch. 

5. Once this code has been entered and saved, 2FA will now be enabled for your account. To confirm that 2FA is enabled, review the landing page on the 'Security' section and the status should be labeled as 'Active', example: 2-Step Verification Status: Active.

Fun Facts about 2FA!

  1. As of right now, every time you log in you will need to enter a code. The code will be sent to your e-mail address associated with your ThreatSwitch account. 

  2. 2FA is not automatically enabled, each user will need to log in to complete this process.

  3. To disable 2FA, open the 'Security' page and select 'Disable Two Factor Authentication'.
