How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication

 

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) ensures account security by asking users to verify their identity twice. In the ProProfs Help Desk, you can quickly enable 2FA. Users who log in to their HD account on a new device will receive a login code in their registered email inbox.

 

Here’s what the two-factor authentication will look like:

Enter the code you will receive in your inbox

 

By enabling two-factor authentication, you can:

 

  • Enhance your account security by adding one more step for verification

  • Reduce cyberattacks using weak or stolen login credentials

Step 1: In your ProProfs Help Desk account, navigate to My Account in the top-right of your screen.

Step 2: Select Two-Factor Authentication on the left panel and switch it ON.

 

Navigate to Two-Factor Authetication and Turn it On

 

The authentication method is now active on your account.
