TouchPoint now supports 2FA (two-factor authentication)! This feature adds an extra layer of security to ensure that people trying to gain access to their account are who they say they are. Once you enable 2FA on your account, you will enter your username and password, followed by a time-sensitive code (the second factor) supplied by an app. You can make this security feature available as an option for your staff or you can require it for specific user roles (e.g. Admin and Finance users).
Use of 2FA requires a mobile device with any TOTP (time-based one-time password) authenticator. These are usually free and are easily obtainable. Common authenticators include:
- Google Authenticator
- Microsoft Authenticator
