Two factor authentication

Recommended Posts

Mopar1973Man.Com is now going to start using two-factor authentication. This is to protect the site as well as protect the user account information. Now any members that are donors and/or customers you will be required for two-factor authentication. All staff is required automatically. I will say that any personal data like passwords and email are protected by this feature. Now normal members are optional and may set up this feature if they wish but is not required. There are two methods of authentication either Google Authenticator or Question and Answers. Google authenticator is free and can be installed on your mobile device. Questions and Answers are another form which you just answer your secure question and gain access to the protected area. As for the question and answers if there is other ideas please PM me I'll add more questions to the question listing. 

 

This will provide better security than most other forums out on the internet. Between the SSL Encryption of the entire site so no one can monitor anything being typed on the web page during login or otherwise. Then preventing people from brute force attacking accounts. If there is any question please post them up here I'll do what I can to answer them.

Will the site automatically go to the verification questions when I log in?

It made me try to do it on my phone the other day, then it didn't when i tried to log back in.  I'm one of the last holdouts running a blackberry, so I can't get the google authenticator app.  You say there is a way to use a different 2 step authenticator app?  Is that in our control panel somewhere?

That's easy at the bottom of the window it will have a link for the question versus. You'll need to setup the Question/Answer side. That is in in the profile area of your account. If your still having issue give me a call I'll help you through this.
