Enabling Two-Factor Authentication on ExoClick accounts
Protecting your account information is a top priority for ExoClick, that is why we recommend that you activate Two-factor authentication.
What is 2FA and why you should be using it?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a highly efficient way to secure your accounts and digital assets. It works like an extra layer of security to better protect both user’s credentials and the resources that the user can access. So when you log into your ExoClick account you would be asked for two things: a password (something you know) and a second factor, such as a one-time passcode via a push notification sent to your mobile phone (something you own).
Online security experts strongly suggest enabling 2FA on all your online accounts; including email accounts, social networks, online banking, e-commerce sites, cloud computing etc.
