To enable the Two-Factor Authentication please go to ‘My profile’ and use the slider ‘Enable two-factor authentication’:
To install the Google Authenticator application on your mobile phone, you need to select your way to uploading:
Please make a scan of this secret code to your Google Authenticator
Note: if you change your secret code, please don’t forget to make a scan of your new secret code again.
MoneyPenny added an example of how you can use the two-factor authentication in the correct way:
…after all please, don’t forget to Save Changes.
Your secret code can be wrong if there is a time difference of more than 2 mins between your phone and your computer; if you changed the secret code and forgot to scan to the authentication application and if you lost your phone. In this case, you should contact your Account Owner and he can switch off the 2-factor authentication for you.
To switch off the Two-Factor Authentication for your staff (as the account owner or an admin) you can do on the Staff’s profile page: got to Contacts -> Staff -> click the needed person’s name:
The profile page will get opened. Scroll down to the Staff Details -> Two Factor auth -> Make sure the button is grey -> click save:
Now your Staff Member can log in just with the username and password. If you are an Account Owner and have troubles logging in yourself then the MoneyPenny Support team is here for you, do not hesitate to contact us and we will help.
