Set up two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication (also known as 2-step verification or 2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your account by requiring a verification code at the time you log in.

How it works:

  • Every time you log into your Nulab Account, you’ll be asked to enter a verification code along with your password.
  • You’ll receive a verification code via the types of verification methods you have selected.
  • Enter the code on the Nulab Account login page along with your password, and you will be able to access your account.

  1. Click on your organization/profile icon in the global navigation.
  2. Select My Profile.
  3. Click on the Security tab.
  4. Click on the Two-Factor Authentication link in the left-hand menu and click Start Two-Factor Authentication.
  5. You may choose the preferred type of authentication.

Verify via the mobile app

To get a verification code from the mobile app:

    Generate backup codes

    Backup codes should be generated and will help you get access to your account in case you lose access to your two-factor authentication verification. You can easily generate the backup codes on the two-factor authentication settings page, and it will provide a list of 10 codes. You can download or print it out and save it somewhere that is secure and easily retrieved by you.

    1. On the two-factor authentication security settings page, select TFA Settings.
    2. Click Generate backup codes in the Backup code section.
    3. A list of 10 backup codes will generate. We recommend downloading or printing a copy of your backups and storing them in a safe place.

    Do you know?

    Each backup code can only be used once. Generating a new set of backup codes wil make the old ones expire.
