2-factor authentication (2FA) is an optional additional security feature on GateHub, providing a second layer of protection when logging into your account.
How does it work?
It is a two-component authentication method which requires a smartphone (or tablet) with an installed app (we recommend using Google Authenticator) that generates a one-time-valid 6-digit code every 30 seconds.
Why is it recommended?
This feature ensures that your account cannot be hacked by stealing your login email and password. A potential intruder would need access to your authentication code on your phone as well.
When will I need to use it?
Once 2FA is enabled, you will need to input a 6-digit verification code generated by the authentication app on your mobile device each time you try to login to your GateHub account, after already providing your email and password.
