Multi-Factor authentication, also known as two-step authentication, is a computer methodology in which a user is only granted access to a website by providing two pieces of identity evidence.

Multi-Factor authentication acts as an extra layer of security and is designed to verify the identity of a user attempting to access an account. This process commonly involves entering your login credentials, a user id and password, and receiving a second form of confirmation, usually a unique numeric verification code, that can come in the form of an email, a text message or a token sent to an authentication app.

Note: Verification codes cannot be sent to a landline.

How does it work?

Whenever you log in to Pairaphrase on a device or browser, you will be prompted to go through our multi-factor authentication process. First, you will need to enter your login credentials including your email and password.

When you enter your login information you will be prompted with this message to check your email account, cell phone or your authentication app for a verification code.

The verification code will be sent to the authentication device that you choose when you first set up your account. Once you've received the authentication code, you can copy and paste the generated verification code into your Pairaphrase login page. Verification codes are time sensitive and do expire.

Once you have done that, the multi-factor authentication process is completed and you can access Pairaphrase.

Why do we use it?

We implemented multi-factor authentication to guarantee that all our users are secure and safe from cyber attacks and malicious software.
