Two Factor Authentication by Google

Overview

Add an extra layer of protection to your account with 2-Step Verification by Google, also known as Two-Factor Authentication.

Two-step verification uses both your password and an extra security code to verify your identity whenever you sign in to your account. If someone else tries to access your account, even if they can guess your password, they still won’t be able to get in without using two-step verification.

Attention

For correct performance of the add-on make sure that the time on your server is correct. Contact your system administrator or our technical support team if you need help.
