You can add Two Factor Authentication, or 2FA to your Sucuri account. This feature helps you secure your account making sure it’s protected even if your password gets stolen.
If you’re not familiar with this service, simply install Google Authenticator and Barcode Scanner on your smartphone. To do this, open the App Store (iPhone) or Play Store (Android), search for these apps, and click Install
To enable 2FA on your Sucuri account go to the 2FA option found in the Billing section of your Sucuri dashboard and click Enable 2FA
This will generate a bar code:
Then, go back to your smartphone, open Google Authenticator and click on Begin set up
Click on “Scan a barcode”:
Use your phone camera to scan the barcode displayed in your browser.
You will hear a beep and see the new account in Google Authenticator under login.sucuri.net/login/ – Click the refresh icon next to generate a new code. Type this code into the field provided in your browser (under the barcode) and click Test Code.
You will see a confirmation message saying Code accepted and 2FA activated – and that is it! 2FA has been set up in your phone!
From this point on, logging in to your Sucuri account will require both your password and a new code from Google Authenticator. Simply enter your username and password like you normally would:
And then you will be asked for a login code:
You can get this code in your phone, by simply opening your Google Authenticator app and clicking on the blue “Generate Code” refresh icon.
After clicing the refresh icon a new code will be displayed:
Type the code into the login screen and click on Verify to login
If you ever need to disable this feature, just go here and click on “Disable 2FA”
