To strengthen the security of your Patchdeck console we recommend that all users on your account activate two-factor authentication. This adds an important layer of protection in case your password gets compromised. We currently support two-factor authentication via authenticator apps like Google Authenticator or Authy.
Please note that when you activate business authentication for a user, two-factor authentication cannot be setup in the Patchdeck settings but should be configured via your authentication provider, e.g. Microsoft Azure Active Directory.
Here is how you activate two-factor authentication for your user:
Step 1: Open your account settings
Step 2: Open the two-factor authentication settings
Click on the button “Manage two-factor authentication”:
Step 3: Configure two-factor authentication
- Click on “Enable two-factor authentication”
- Follow the wizard and make sure you have your phone with an installed authenticator app at hand
- After you have finished the setup in the wizard two-factor authentication is enabled and you will always need to provide the second factor code when you login to the Patchdeck console
