How to enable two-factor authentication (2FA)
You can enable two-factor authentication on your account for heightened security. Once enabled, an additional security code, generated by your phone, is required to access your account.
Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security. As well as your password (the first factor), a second factor (the 2FA app) is required to gain access to your account. Even in case of leaked password, your account is protected by this second layer of security.
- You have an account and are logged into the Dedibox Console
- You have downloaded a 2FA Authenticator application to your phone
Click your user name next to logged in as: in the top right corner of the console. Then click Security in the pop-up menu.
The security page displays. Click SHOW QR CODE to display the QR-code to add the Scaleway Dedibox console to your authenticator application.Tip:
If your phone does not have a camera, you can manually enter the registration code shown in the console.
Open the authenticator application on your phone and scan the code using the application.
A registration code is displayed on your phone’s display. Enter this code in the activation form and click Enable to validate.
Your account is now protected by two-factor authentication, and a security token will be requested upon your next login.
Make sure to keep your authentication device secure as you can’t log in without the 2FA security token.
