To enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), sign in to your SALTO KS account and navigate to the Profile page. Here, click on ‘Manage Profile and Settings’ beneath Profile Information.
From there, scroll down to your ‘Security & services’ section, where you can choose to either have your Two-Factor Authentication ‘Enabled’ or ‘Disabled’.
After you have enabled 2FA, you will be required to enter your password again for security purposes. From this step, you will need to select your authentication method.
Should you select the authenticator app as your method of choice, download the Google Authenticator App (available for iOS and Android) or another similar app of your choice. Then, register your app by either entering the code from the given options into your authenticator app or scanning the QR code.
We then request you back up your authentication method with Email authentication in the event you do not have your device on hand.
If you select SMS, we will request you to enter your mobile number in order to register SMS authentication. Then, click ‘Send SMS’, and a 6-digit code will be sent to your registered mobile number. In the next and final step, enter this code and click ‘Register’ to enable this authentication method.
If you select Email, we will use the email address in your profile to register for this authentication method. A 6-digit code will be sent to this registered email address, after which you have to return to your SALTO KS app and enter this code to confirm this mode of authentication.
As a final step, no matter your authentication method, you need to generate your Recovery Code to be used when you have lost your device or cannot access it. Keep this code safe, as you will not be shown this code again.
You will then be shown a confirmation message that you have successfully registered a Two-Factor Authentication method. Well done!
Once you have 2FA enabled, the authentication method selected by you will be used as the second factor of authentication whenever you log in.
