In order to secure your account with the 2FA follow the next steps:1. Go to the Settings section by clicking on the same-named button at the top-right corner of the dashboard.
2. Within the opened frame, switch to the Account tab and click Set Up Two-Factor Authentication.
You need to confirm your password via the appeared pop-up to proceed.3. Next, you need to interconnect your Jelastic account with the Google Authenticator application on your mobile phone (if needed, follow the linked guide to help you with installation). Open the app on your device and add the account by either scanning the displayed QR code or manually typing the provided data.
As a result, you’ll see the six-digit code (automatically refreshed every 30 seconds), type it into the dashboard frame and click Next to verify.
4. In the second step, you’ll see the recovery codes, which can be used as a one-time alternative to the generated authentication codes.
Note: Ensure your recovery codes are saved. Otherwise, in case of your phone unavailability, you won’t be able to connect to your account. Also, they are the only option to restore access upon device loss.
You need to tick the I’ve saved the data checkbox (automatically checked after using the Download or Copy buttons) to be able to close this window by clicking Done.5. Now, to login into account, you’ll need to provide the login/password credentials (as usual) and enter a code from the authentication application on your device (or the recovery code).
That’s it! Your account is now protected with two-factor authentication.
