In order to use two-factor authentication on your Networking4all account, you need an application that can generate two-factor authentication codes. The app ‘Google Authenticator’ (for Android and Iphone) can be installed on your mobile phone for this purpose. Follow the steps on your phone to install the app. Keep your mobile phone nearby for the following process.
Log into the Networking4all portal. Go to the menu ‘My Account’ and click on the menu-option ‘My Account’. Click on the tab ‘Account and scroll down to find the account option ‘Two-factor authentication’.
Open the app you previously installed on your phone and press the red plus-icon. Choose the option ‘Scan a barcode’. Your phone will now start up your camera: a red square will appear on your screen. Scan the QR code on your account page, making sure the entire code falls within the red square.
Switch the option ‘Two-factor authentication’ to ‘active’ and click Save.
From this moment, any time you log in to the Networking4all portal, you will first be shown the login screen where you enter your username and password. After entering your credentials, you will be asked to enter a code. Open the app on your phone. Google Authenticator automatically generates a new code for you every so often. Enter the code belonging to your Networking4all account in the field on the login screen.
