Protect your account against hackers by switching on Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for your account. 2FA means you will need your mobile to hand when logging in on a laptop or desktop, so if your password is compromised or stolen, you'll have peace of mind knowing that only you can sign in.
Keeping your data safe is our highest priority so we’re proud to say that we are the first HR Compliance system to currently have 2FA available.
How does 2FA work?
You’ll need access to your mobile phone when you sign in to the Portal.
You'll enter a verification code and your password each time you sign in.
Your verification code will come from the authenticator app on your mobile.
The ICO says ‘If there’s a two-step authentication option – use it’. https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/online/consumer-devices/
How do I switch on 2FA on my Portal account?
Login to your account and click on your name in the top right corner, then click Profile.
At the bottom of the page click the ‘Enable two factor authentication’ button.
Then just follow the instructions on screen. Don’t forget to have your mobile phone with you for this.
Take a look at our 2FA and we'll walk you through these steps.
Be sure to share this with whoever is responsible for IT security in your company.
