One factor users of your application will look out for is how well their data is being protected. At Reloadly, we’ve taken additional steps to ensure that every user’s account is secure and accessible to them only. This is made possible through our two-factor authentication infrastructure which works with multiple authentication providers. In this article, you’ll learn how to secure your Reloadly account using our two-factor authentication feature in five steps.

What is two-factor authentication?

Simply put, two-factor authentication (2FA) is a way of establishing access to an online account or computer system that requires the user to provide two different types of information. It provides the system you’re trying to access with additional evidence that you are the rightful owner of the account.

Steps to enabling 2FA on your Reloadly account.

On your Reloadly dashboard, navigate to the Security section:

As shown below, you will see a section with details of how 2FA works and the security applications supported by Reloadly’s infrastructure ( Google Authentication, Authy, Auth0 Guardian, and DUO ). Click on the Enable button, this enables two-factor authentication on your account.

On clicking the Enable button, you will get a notification on the dashboard informing you that the two-factor authentication security measure has been enabled.

As an additional security measure, you will also get an email from the Reloadly team informing you of this change.
