Help > Website Toolbox Account > Two-factor authentication
Two-factor authentication uses two separate methods to confirm your identity for authentication. One is your password and another is a 6-digit code that is generated every 30 seconds by an app on your phone. This ensures that a hacker who somehow gets your password, even by hacking your computer, still cannot access your account since they would not have the code generated by your app.
This option is only available for the primary forum owner logging in to the master Website Toolbox account through websitetoolbox.com. It isn't available to administrators logging in through the Admin link on the forum.
Once the option is enabled, you'll see an additional screen which asks for your two factor authentication code after logging in. You will only be able to proceed with logging in if you provide the correct code.
You can enable or disable two-factor authentication on your Website Toolbox account by following the instructions below:
