What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is an advanced login process that adds an extra layer of security to your account. Currently, only a username and complex password are required to access your eState account. However, with the implementation of 2FA, you can enhance security measures by enabling an additional verification step.
How to Enable Two-Factor Authentication
To enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your account, follow these steps:
- Locate the circle displaying your initials in the top right corner and click on it. From the dropdown menu, select "My Account."
- On the left side, find the 2FA tab and click on it.
- There are two types of 2FA currently available - Email and Authenticator App. Click the slider button on the left to select an option.
- If you are the Authenticator App option, follow the steps to connect the authenticator app to your account. First, download an authenticator app to your device. Next, scan the QR code on the screen using the authenticator app. Finally, enter the code provided by the authenticator app and click "Connect".
- Once 2FA is activated, your user account will require an additional security step. Every time you log in, you will be prompted to verify your login through a second verification method.
Note: If you are selecting the email option, please note that it may take up to 2 minutes for the verification email to arrive in your inbox. From that point forward, you will be presented with a 2FA challenge during each login attempt, adding an extra layer of security to your account.
