Two-Factor Authentication lets you ensure only trusted networks have access to your account, by using your smartphone to validate login attempts from new IP addresses.

Why use Two-Factor Authentication?

Our two-factor authentication mod uses Google Authenticator to pair a member's forum account with their smartphone app. A "Recovery Key" shown on-screen during setup ensures that if a member should ever lose their phone, they can regain access to their account.
