Setting up 2 Factor Authentication
Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security method which is used to grant access to users only after they provide two pieces of personal evidence. The first is your password and the second is a code generated by an authentication app.
2FA is normally enforced by default and set up on the first log-in. If this doesn't occur please click on your username in the top left of Clocktimizer and click "Enable two factor authentication".
You will then be prompted to scan a QR code with your authentication app, such as Google Authenticator app.
You can download this app on your phone and then scan the QR code. Enter the code that is generated in the field next to Pin and click on Enable. You are now all set up!
Resetting 2 Factor Authentication
If you lose your phone or access to your authentication app, you will need to reset your 2FA in order to log in again. This can be done several ways depending on your situation:
- If Clocktimizer runs in the cloud, your 2FA can be reset by us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
- If Clocktimizer runs on premise, your 2FA can be reset by the Clocktimizer administrator at your firm.
