Importance of enabling 2FA

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is paramount in today's digital landscape due to the escalating threats to online security. It adds an extra layer of protection beyond just a password, requiring users to verify their identity through a second means, such as a code sent to their mobile device.

This additional step significantly mitigates the risk of unauthorized access, even if passwords are compromised. With cyber threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, relying solely on passwords poses a vulnerability that 2FA effectively addresses. Enabling 2FA is a proactive measure that fortifies your digital accounts, ensuring a higher level of security and safeguarding sensitive information from potential breaches.

Steps to enable 2FA on your account:

  1. Navigate to your Profile page.

  2. Toggle on Access Security Settings

  3. The available 2FA option will be shown under Two-Factor Authentication:

    • Authenticator App: Utilize an Authenticator App for Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Upon signing in, you will need to input the security code generated by your Authenticator App.

      Select from the following third-party authenticator apps that can be found in your mobile device's app store (Google Play or Apple App Store) and download it:

      • Google Authenticator

      • LastPass Authenticator

      • Microsoft Authenticator

      • Authy

  4. Scan the provided QR Code from Teads with your Authenticator App

  5. Navigate to your Authenticator App and copy the code generated there.

  6. Navigate back to Teads and paste the code in the box provided.

  7. Click "Confirm" to register your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

    Your account page will be automatically updated to confirm the activation of the chosen authentication method.
