FingerCheck has enabled a new security feature you can enable to require anyone logging into your account to provide a second factor of authentication to gain access. Here's how to do it, and how it works:
- Log onto your FingerCheck account and go to “Preferences” on the top right corner of your dashboard. Go to the last line, and check the box next to "Use Two-Factor Authentication." An email containing your security code will be sent to the email address you have on file with FingerCheck. Retrieve the code from your email and enter it into the "Security Code" box, then click "Submit." You can check "Trust this Computer" if you want FingerCheck to remember this device. After this, you can close "Preferences."
- The next time you log in on a computer or device that FingerCheck doesn't recognize, after entering your username, password, and company code, a Two-Factor Authentication message will pop up and ask you to retrieve the security code sent to your email. Once you provide the code, you can check "Trust this Computer" (if you wish) and click "Continue" to be taken into your account.
And that's it! By implementing two-factor authentication, FingerCheck secures your account against hackers and intruders. Only users with access to your email will be able to log into your account.
