This guide will look at how to set up two-factor authentication on your account.

What is two-factor authentication?

  • Two-factor authentication means that when you log into Hoowla there will be two steps
    • You’ll need to enter your password them
    • You will be prompted to enter a 6 digit code that is generated by an app on your mobile phone

No, two-factor authentication is on an individual basis, so you can have one user, a few users or everyone using two-factor authentication.
