MFA adds an additional layer of security to your account, significantly reducing the risk of unauthorized access. This advanced security measure will require users to provide multiple forms of verification during login, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access your sensitive information. MFA increases security beyond a password, reduces the risk of unauthorized access, and helps reduce fraud in the industry.
- Once your email login is set to switch to MFA, you'll encounter the new MFA flow after successfully entering your login credentials for any of the DAT products you're subscribed to. This additional step ensures a higher level of security for your account..
- In the MFA flow, you will be prompted to enter your phone number. This step is crucial as it allows the system to send verification codes for authentication purposes.
- Once you have entered your phone number, you can choose your preferred method of receiving the verification code. The default option is usually text message (SMS), but you can also select a voice call if desired.
- After selecting your preferred method, wait for the verification code to be sent to your phone. You will receive a text message or a voice call containing the code. Enter the code into the designated field on the login screen.
- To ensure a successful login, make sure to enter the code within 3 minutes.
- Upon entering the correct verification code within the time limit, you will be granted access to your product.
- After the initial MFA setup, subsequent logins may not always require the same procedure. When logging in, you will have the option to click on the "Remember this device for 30 days" checkbox. Enabling this option will exempt you from going through the MFA flow for the next 30 days on the same device.
- On subsequent logins, you can receive the authentication code via email by choosing the option to USE ANOTHER METHOD.
