How to setup 2-Factor Authentication


#1

It’s our recommendation that you use this additional method of authentication.

PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve shared your login with other people then they’ll be locked out.

LeadsHook allows you to add as many users as you want for no additional cost, You should invite your team members or outsourced resources so they are not using your login.

What is 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)?

It’s a way to identify you in 2 different ways. Your password being the first and a secret code displayed in an authentication app on your mobile phone or tablet. This secret code refreshes every 30 seconds.

I’m sure you’re already using something similar to access your bank accounts.

After you’ve setup 2FA, every time you login, you’ll have to enter a secret code displayed in the authenticator app on your mobile device

There are a few different apps available that you can use for 2FA. In our testing, Google’s Authenticator app works well. Feel free to use any app.
