Next, press the Get started button. Infatica’s 2FA method uses time-based tokens, which are short numeric codes that you need to input every time you log in to your account. To get a time-based token and link your Infatica account, you can use apps like Google Authenticator or Duo.

  • Scanning a QR code or
  • Inputting the code manually.

Last but not least, write the backup code down. If you cannot complete 2FA (if you lost your phone with the authenticator app, for instance), it will help regain access to your Infatica account.

Frequently Asked Questions

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security used to ensure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are. First, a user will enter their username and a password. Then, instead of immediately gaining access, they will be required to provide another piece of information, such as a code sent to their phone.

2FA adds an additional layer of security to your account by requiring a second form of verification beyond just your password. This makes it much harder for unauthorized users to gain access, even if they have your password.

To enable 2FA, go to your account settings, find the security settings, and follow the instructions to set up two-factor authentication. You will need your mobile device to complete the setup process.

Our 2FA system uses time-based tokens, which you can get via apps like Google Authenticator or Duo.

If you lose access to your second factor, you can use backup codes provided during the 2FA setup process. If you do not have backup codes, contact our support team for assistance with account recovery

Currently, 2FA is optional but highly recommended to ensure the highest level of security for your account.

No, enabling and using 2FA on your Infatica account is free of charge.

If you encounter any issues with setting up or using 2FA, please contact our support team.
