What is 2-factor authentication?

Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security that requires not only a password and username but also something that the user has on them. Hypervault uses Google Authenticator to be that extra layer of security. You can download the app here for Android and here for IOS.

Where can I activate 2FA in Hypervault?

Activating 2FA is highly recommended.

  1. When you’re in your dashboard, click on the user icon in the upper right of the page.
  2. Select ‘your account’
  3. This part of the tool covers all your settings, including team and personal information. Click on ‘Personal information’ on the left to proceed. This will list all your personal fields.
  4. Under the input ‘Company’, there is a checkbox ‘Enable Google 2FA’. Select it and click on the blue button ‘update profile’.
  5. The next time you login, you need to scan the barcode with your app and fill in the 6-digit code Google Authenticator provides.
  6. You’re all set!
