How to enable two-factor authentication in KeepSolid User Office?
If you wonder how to add an extra layer of security to your KeepSolid ID, check out our detailed guide.
Note: When you enable this feature, you will be automatically logged out of your account on all your devices. When logging in, you’ll also need to provide a code instead of only entering your password.
1. Sign in to your account in your KeepSolid User Office.
2. Go to My Account in the pop-up menu on the left or just tapping your KeepSolid ID in the right upper corner.
3. Then press the Manage button to enter the Profile Settings menu.
4. To turn on the Two-Factor Authentication feature, find and press the Require password toggle button. The two-factor authentication with a code by email will be turned on automatically.
5. You can additionally enable 2FA with the Authenticator App to add another layer of security to your account.
To use an Authenticator App as your second factor of authentication, you need to install it on your mobile device and link to your KeepSolid ID.
