How do I set up two-factor authentication?
Two-Factor Authentication is a tool offered by Directnic to ensure the highest level of security for your Directnic account. In addition to the associated password, accounts using two-factor authentication will need to have a unique token or key in order to log in.
We offer two different brands of Two-Factor Authentication: Google Authenticator and YubiKey. To activate this service, log in to your Directnic account and go to Settings > Security Settings > Two Factor Authentication or go directly to this link: https://directnic.com/my/profile/security.
Here are the instructions for using them:
- Download the Google Authenticator app onto your Smartphone or tablet device and install it. Here are the links:
Apple/iOS device: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-authenticator/id388497605
