Overview:
This Article help users to onboard Seqrite EPS Cloud License/30 Days Trial license with Two-Factor Authentication process. Seqrite has introduced Two-Factor Authentication process to ensure more safety to your account and data.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is the most common type of multi-Factor implementation that pairs two types of distinct evidences for validating the entire process of log-ins.
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security system that requires two separate, distinct forms of identification to access Seqrite HawkkEye product. The first factor is a password and the second is verification code sent to your smartphone.

Two-Factor Authentication ensures that even if one of the factors have been compromised or leaked, the other factor blocks hackers/criminals from accessing your account, thereby minimizing the risk of data theft.
