Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is mandatory for all 2Shakes users, and adds an extra layer of protection to all the data you hold in 2Shakes. With 2FA anyone trying to break into your 2Shakes account would need both your password and your mobile device to gain access. You will be asked to setup 2FA when you first login. You will need to download an Authenticator App such as Google Authenticator, which provides secure six-digit codes to use to log in to your account.
1. When you first login, after setting your password you’ll be taken to the 2FA setup screen. Click Enable two factor authentication to get started.
2. You will be asked to enter your password so we know it’s you.
3. Then you will be shown back up codes. If you lose your device or otherwise can’t get codes from Google Authenticator, you can use backup codes to sign in. We recommend you store your codes wherever you keep your other valuable information. (Note: Backup codes are only valuable to someone if they manage to also steal your password.)
4. If you haven’t already, you will now need to install your chosen Authenticator App, such as Google Authenticator, on your mobile phone.
Once you have the Authenticator App you will be able to use the phone’s camera to scan the QR code. There is also an option to enter the code manually if you prefer.
5. The Authenticator App will add 2Shakes as an account, and start to generate six-digit codes that continually update. Enter the current code to confirm.
6. After entering the code you’ll get a confirmation screen that 2FA is now set up successfully.
7. Well done! You can now click on Back to Dashboard, or use any of the navigation menus to use 2Shakes.
From now on, each time you login to 2Shakes you will enter your email and password, followed by the current 6-digit code on the Authenticator App.
When it comes to changing your phone, Google Authenticator has an export account function that is really useful, an d can save you tons of time.
1. In Google Authenticator, use the … and select Export Accounts.
2. Select all, some or one account you want transferred to the new phone.
3. Click Export and scan the QR code (or codes) shown on the old phone using Google Authenticator on your new phone.
4. The codes will now appear on your new phone, and are still usable on your old phone too!
If you lose your phone, the next time you log in to 2SHakes you can use one of your backup codes (the ones you saved in a safe place in step 3 above). Then you can setup 2FA again.
If you no longer have access to your backup codes just email email@example.com and we will help you, no problem.
