We've Got You Covered: Introducing Two-Factor Authentication

By Ashley Waxman on .

At Runscope, security is our top priority. We value your data and always make sure that it’s safe, secure and available only to authorized users. That’s why we’re excited to announce that you can now enable two-factor authentication (2FA) in your Runscope account with Authy. This extra level of protection ensures that if an unauthorized person accesses your username and password, that person still won’t be able to log in to Runscope as you. With 2FA, you identify yourself in Runscope with both your password and a token retrieved from your mobile phone or other device.

Enabling 2FA is easy from your Runscope dashboard. Simply go into your profile, and the second listing is labeled Two-Factor Authentication. Select On and add your phone number. Once your phone number is verified through your device, you’re all set! Anytime you sign back in to your Runscope account, you’ll be prompted for an authentication token.

If you enable 2FA, you should install Authy on your phone or computer to generate access codes. If you don't have the app installed, we'll send an SMS to the mobile phone number specified.

We recommend enabling 2FA for your entire team. It’s fast, easy and you’ll have extra assurance that your data is protected and secure.
