Two-Factor Authentication Now Available

May 9, 2015, Written by 0 comment

Security is a top priority for us at Valcato Hosting and we’re always looking for ways to pro-actively protect our clients. For that reason I am pleased to announce that Two-Factor Authentication is now available to add an extra layer of security to your Valcato Account.

We are using a system called ‘Time Based Tokens’ which you may have encountered already on other websites such as Microsoft and WordPress. It works by requiring a 6 digit number which changes every 30 seconds – in addition to the email address and password – to login.

The 6 digit number, or token, is generated by an app on your phone or tablet. This means that even if a malicious person were to obtain your password, they wouldn’t be able to login as they don’t have your phone, so cannot know the token.
