Setting up two factor authentication (2FA)
Updated Monday December 14th 2020 / Category Accounts

Two factor authentication or 2FA is the most secure way to lock down your account and ensure only you can gain access. This is achieved by ensuring you’re always notified when a login attempt is made, and your preferred contact method (email, app or text) is given a unique code each time that must be used to login successfully. This extra step makes a world of difference when protecting your account.

To activate 2FA you will need to login to VIPControl and then click your name at the top right, followed by “my profile”. From there you can select “Two Factor Authentication” from the security tab on the left hand side.

Once you hit “Enable” you will be able to select your preferred method (email, app or text) each method will get some additional details and send you a code to ensure those details are correct before the system enables. Once the code has been entered your account will be protected by 2FA!

Keep in mind due to the increased security if you lose access to your device and can no longer login we will need some additional authentication in order to disable this for you to ensure that security is maintained.
