Introduction

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is one of the alternatives when it comes to Multi-Factor Authentication.

The user is only granted access by presenting 2 pieces of evidence (hence the Two-Factor).

In the case of our implementation, the 2 factors are:

  • The password

  • A One-Time Password (OTP) that is generated through a third- party authenticator app (such as Google Authenticator).

With these two factors, knowledge (password) & possession (OTP), we increase the security of the user account.


Instructions

This section gives instructions on how to set up 2FA on Monsido and how to use it to log in.
