Two-factor Authentication

Two-factor Authentication (2FA) adds an additional layer of security to your account.

When logging in, 2FA requires an extra validation besides your password, usually a mobile phone or a security key.

As cyber-attacks on businesses, governments and nonprofits continue to evolve, we need to act preventively. 2FA is highly effective in guarding access to your account, preventing data theft and infrastructure destruction.

Note. If you are using Single Sign-on (SSO), you do not need Two-factor Authentication (2FA) in Apsis One, since the 2FA should instead be configured on you SSO provider. SSO is an identification method that brings additional security and enables users to log in to multiple applications with one set of credentials.

Set up Two-factor Authentication

Set up Two-factor Authentication by verifying via mobile app.

1. Go to Settings, in the top right corner, and proceed to Profile Settings.

2. Under Two-factor Authentication, chose Enable verification via app or SMS-verification.

We recommend using app based authentication to uphold a high level of security, as SMS-verification is not supported in all countries and other require registration.
View SMS-supported countries here.

If you happen to lose your device and are unable to log in with an SMS code or Google Authenticator, please Customer Service.

Verification via App
