How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) On Altrady?

Altrady recommends enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) on your account as it provides an extra layer of security to the sensitive data and assets. When you activate two-factor authentication, then apart from entering your account credentials (username and password), you are also required to enter a 2FA authentication PIN. The authenticator is generally a secondary device like a smartphone or a USB key.

While signing up on Altrady platform, all the users are provided with an option to set-up the 2FA. If you skip setting up 2FA during the onboarding (registration) process, then Altrady will remind you to set up this security feature while you log in to your account.

Let's have a look at the easy step-by-step process of setting up the two-factor authentication on Altrady.

Step-1: Sign in to your Altrady account.

Step-2: After signing in to your account, you will be redirected to a page providing you with an option to setup Google authenticator. You need to simply click on the "Setup Google Authenticator" button. (Other authenticator apps work also like Authy etc.)

This page appears first during the onboarding (registration) process. It is suggested that you set up the 2FA during the registration process itself to establish the additional security layer from the very beginning.

Google Authenticator is one of the most popular and reliable 2FA service available for iOS and Android devices, both. You can use others also, like mentioned before (Authy etc.)

Step-3: Download the Authenticator App (google authenticator, authy etc.) for either Android or iOS, (based on your device type) to configure the 2FA service on your smartphone. Once done, then click on the Next Step button.


Step-4: Launch the Authenticator application (google authenticator, authy etc.) on your device to scan the QR code appearing on Altrady screen. You can also enter the code manually on the Authenticator app. Once done, then hit the Next Step button.

Scan your QR code from Altrady, using your authentication app

Step-5: After scanning the QR code, don't forget to save your backup key because it can be used to recover your Authenticator account in case you lose your device. Click on the Next Step button when you are done.

It is advisable to all Altrady users to keep a copy of the backup key generated because it will help you to sign-in once again in case you lose your smartphone device.

Store the backup code in a secure place such as a password manager

Step-6: Lastly, enter the code appearing on your Authenticator app to complete your two-factor authentication setup.



So, that's it. All it takes is six simple steps to configure a reliable two-factor authentication service on Altrady.
