Multi-Factor Authentication

Secure your account with Multi-Factor authentication
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires users to provide multiple forms of authentication in order to access a system, application, or service. This adds an extra layer of security, making it more difficult for unauthorised users to gain access to sensitive information
You can set up Multi-Factor authentication in one of the two ways. Firstly, using any Authenticator app capable of generating Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP) authentication codes. You can use Google Authenticator or Duo Mobile or any other compatible application to generate the codes. Secondly, You can enable OTP based login via Registered Email Address. Everytime you try to login a OTP will be sent to your registered email and you have to verify it.
