As part of our continual effort to ensure optimum security on our servers, we have enabled 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) which protects your account area from un-authorised access.
Next time you login, you will be invited to set up 2FA with us.
Overview of how it works
Using Google Authenticator or Authy app on your Android or Apple Smartphone, you can generate a unique 6 digit code which allows you to access your account.
You will continue to use your same username and password, but this additional 2FA code will generate a fresh code each time you login.
Simply login as normal, click the app and enter the 6 digit code shown
Installing a 2FA Client
Install Google Authenticator for Android
Clicking the link above will take you to the Play Store. You can otherwise, visit play store on your phone, search for Google Authenticator and install it.
Install Google Authenticator for Apple Phone
Clicking the link above will take you to the Apple Store. You can otherwise, visit app store on your phone, search for Google Authenticator and install it.
Using your 2FA Client for the first time
Run the app and click the + button to add an authentication. This gives you an option to 'scan a barcode'. You simply scan the barcode provided by our website to set it up.
Once it scans the bar code, a 6 digit code will appear on the screen. This is unique to you and ONLY you can access your account by using this 6 digit code
Unique Code each time the app runs
The code you use is unique and will never be used again. Each time you login, simply run the app to get the latest 6 digit code and login.
Using Google Authenticator for Multiple Sites
You can scan as many barcodes as you wish, for other sites which use 2FA. This will become more common with increased security online and this app and system is not unique to WEBS Ltd. You can use this app to secure access to any other sites you use, which support 2FA.
