How do I set-up 2-factor authentication for my account?


2-Factor Authentication is an optional setting in your account, and allows you to add an additional layer of security to your account. This is accomplished With two-step verification, where you open a trusted app on your smartphone to generate a dynamic security code, and use that code to login into your account. This way, anyone else trying to gain access to your account would not only have to know your login ID and password, but also be in possession of your smartphone.

To use 2-Factor Authentication, you will need to download of the following app for your respective smartphone:

Android Phone: Google Authenticator, & Authy

iOS, and Blackberry: Authy App

Windows Phone: Authenticator

Once you have the app follow the steps below to complete the setup:

  1. From the Account Overview section, click on the Edit button next to Two Step Verification.
  2. Create a nickname for your smartphone. For example, you could name it “iPhone” or “Galaxy” or “Bob”, if you’d like. Then click Add Device.
  3. Open the downloaded app from your phone and take a picture of the QR Code. If you have an Android phone and it is not able to scan the QR code, click on the Problems with QR Code link and add the Secret Key that appears on the screen.
  4. Finally, enter the six digit code from the app and click Verify Code, and you’re done!

The next time you login at enom.com, we’ll ask you to enter the code generated by the app (in addition to your login ID and password, of course). The code changes every 30 seconds.
