HEXONET Activating 2-Factor Authentication on February 1, 2016

What is it 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)?

2FA is a highly secure method of authenticating account holders since it requires a two step verification process to login.  Once 2FA is activated for your account, you will be required to provide your normal password, as well as, an automatic and changing generated code from a smartphone application at login. The auto-generated code is obtained using any of the approved 2FA smartphone applications (listed below).  Again, to access your account, users will need to (1) know their username/password and (2) have access to their smartphone to obtain the secondary auto-generated code.

The 2FA configuration in the Control Panel is located at "Manage Account > My Account > Access Control > 2 FA".  Here you will find detailed instructions on how to enable 2FA.  Please read the instructions carefully and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
