Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Losant's two-factor authentication protects your account against unauthorized access even in the event your password has been compromised.

To use Losant's two-factor authentication you must have a mobile/desktop application that supports the open TOTP standard. Google Authenticator is available for both Android and iOS. Another excellent application for managing TOTP accounts is Authy which has both mobile and desktop clients.

Enabling Two-Factor Authentication

Navigate to the Two-Factor Auth, and the click the Enable Two-Factor Authentication ... button.

Enable Two-Factor Auth

Use your favorite 2FA app like Google Authenticator to scan the QR code. The app will then start generating short-lived, one-time use codes. Type the code displayed within your app into the Two-Factor Code field in your Losant account settings. Enter your Losant password and click Enable Two Factor Auth. If the code expires before you click the button, you will have to enter the new code displayed within your app.

Verify Two-Factor Auth

Signing In with Two-Factor Authentication

Open the two-factor authentication app used in the verification process and select the Losant account. Enter the generated one-time use code into the Two Factor Code field along with your username and password.
