Two-factor authentication (“2FA”) provides an additional layer of BLEND security ensuring only you can access your account, even if your password is compromised.
In addition to a password, you’ll also enter a one-time code sent to your Google Authenticator app. The one-time code is valid for only one minute, after which it self-destructs. This two-step process helps confirm your identity and protects your account from unauthorized access.
To enable two-factor authentication:
- Sign in to your BLEND account from the Control Panel;
- Click “Update your profile” -> Enable 2-step login.
4. Use the app to scan the QR code on your BLEND profile.
5. Enter the 6-digit code from Google Authenticator in the section indicated - > Click Activate.
Remember that when you enable 2FA, you’re enabling a specific device for account verification (your phone). If you get a new phone, you need to disable 2FA first and then re-enable it on your new device.
If for any reason you lost access to your device or have a problem with entering the BLEND profile - submit a ticket and we will assist immediately.
