Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)#
Losant's two-factor authentication protects your account against unauthorized access even in the event your password has been compromised.
To use Losant's two-factor authentication you must have a mobile/desktop application that supports the open TOTP standard. Google Authenticator is available for both Android and iOS. Another excellent application for managing TOTP accounts is Authy which has both mobile and desktop clients.

Enable Two Factor Auth. If the code expires before you click the button, you will have to enter the new code displayed within your app.
