Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

We’ve added an extra layer of security that our clients can choose to enable on login to make it nigh on impossible for hackers to get into your account using a username and password combination. We highly recommend that all our clients utilise this feature.

In today’s world of digital crime and internet fraud it’s increasingly important that we don’t rely solely on usernames and passwords to login to systems that hold sensitive information. Even complicated usernames and password combinations can be hacked.

Two factor authentication adds an extra layer of security that not only requires the username and password but also another piece of data generated from a device that only the user can have on them. It’s usually a numerical code.

You will most likely be familiar with it from online banking, although you may not be familiar with it called Two Factor Authentication. The bank gives you a small hardware device that generates a code from a pin.

To use Two Factor Authentication with citrusHR you simply need to download the Google Authenticator App to your mobile device and follow the instructions. Our team will be more than happy to help you get set-up.
