Configuring two-factor authentication

This procedure shows how to configure two-factor authentication (2FA).

To configure two-factor authentication (2FA):

  1. Install a third-party 2FA app on your mobile device. You can use any of these for example:
  2. Log in to ReadSoft Online and click your user name in the top menu.
  3. In the context menu that appears, click Configure two-factor authentication.
  4. In the dialog that appears, scan the QR code using the 2FA authentication app in your mobile device.
  5. Type the authentication token provided by the 2FA authentication app in your mobile device and click OK.
    Note You cannot set up 2FA if the time on your mobile device is off by more than one minute.

    Setup is now complete. The next time you log into ReadSoft Online, you must provide your normal password and an authentication code (token) from the 2FA app on your mobile device.
