Payroll Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Overview

When using a username and password to log into your account, you are only using single-factor authentication. This process is susceptible to security threats because it represents a single piece of information a malicious person requires. Two-Factor Authentication provides an additional verification level when logging into your account, ensuring that you are the only person who can access your information.

The payroll platform allows you to enable two-factor authentication for your account, which involves verifying either your email account or mobile phone number. If you would prefer not to use your mobile phone number or email address, then you have the option available to enable and use Google Authenticator.
