Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an electronic authentication method in which a user is granted access only after successfully presenting two pieces of evidence to an authentication. This is a good option if you want to add an extra layer of security to your Scrive login. In this case you can either choose Two-factor authentication and verify on you phone, or you can do it directly on your device with the Web two-factor authentication.
Two-factor authentication: With 2FA you use an app which provides you with a 6-digit code. There is a time limit for the code, if the time is running out or turning red, we advise you to wait for a new code. For each login, you must enter this 6-digit code.
Web two-factor authentication: With Web 2FA, you login with a USB security key or directly on your device with password or touch ID.
