Did you consider the impact when someone steals your account names and passwords via phishing? Well, we do. By using 2-Step Verification we help you as an user of Exact Online to avoid misuse of your account by phishing or malware.
Because security is key for Exact, we introduce 2-Step Verification: an additional layer of security for all users of Exact Online.
Besides the regular username and password login of Exact Online a second, unique code is required. This unique code is randomly generated by an app on your smartphone that supports the Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) protocol, like Google Authenticator.
An administrator or manager is able to oblige users to activate 2-Step Verification for their users. As well the administrator is able to disable the feature for his users.
2-Step Verification verifies the identity of an user that logs into Exact Online by requiring the user to supply their existing password and a second, unique randomly generated code by for example the Google Authenticator app on their smartphone, when they log in.
This innovation is now in Controlled Release and will be available from August 2016 for free for all Exact Online users in all countries.
