With 2-Step Verification (also known as two-factor authentication), you add an extra layer of security to your account in case your password is stolen. After you set up 2-Step Verification, you’ll sign in to your account in two steps using:
- Something you know, like your password
- Something you have, like your phone
Before you set up two-factor authentication on your phone, you'll need to decide on an app for generating dynamic passcodes. The most common apps are Google Authenticator and Authy by Twilio.
Once you have a 2FA app installed on your phone, you'll need to scan a QR code to add your Dasset account to the app.
To find the QR code, you'll need to set up two-factor authentication in your Dasset account.
Log into your Dasset account with your email and password, then go to Settings > Two-Factor Authentication. Click "setup" and choose the two-factor option you want.
Once 2FA is set up on your Dasset account, and on your phone, you'll need your phone every time you log in. If you run into any issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
