Two-Step Authentication is a verification method and security feature which adds an extra layer of protection to your Valcre account. By enabling this feature, you will be required to enter a six-digit security code (in addition to your password) whenever you log in to your Valcre account.
To qualify for two-step authentication, you will need a mobile device with the ability to receive text messages or alternatively - able to run a mobile authenticator app.
To set up two-step authentication for text message, please follow the steps below. If you would rather set this up using an authenticator app, which is generally more secure, please see this article here.
Step 1 - Navigate to your 'Account' page on the Valcre platform.
Step 2 - Click 'Enable Two-Factor Authentication'.
Step 3 - Enter your Country Code & Phone Number, then click 'Send Code'.
Step 4 - Enter the code that has been sent to your mobile device, then click 'Verify'.
Step 5 - Select 'Text Message', then click 'Save'.
Step 6 - Enter the code that has been sent to your mobile device, then click 'Verify'.
Step 7 - Download/Print/Save your Recovery Codes in a safe place.
You have now successfully set-up Two-Factor Authentication. Now whenever you log-in to Valcre, you will be greeted by this additional page and will be required to enter the code sent to your phone.
