Enabling Two Factor Authentication (2FA) as an End User
After creating your account, you may be required to, or opt to, set up Two Factor Authentication. To enable, navigate to your Account & Settings page, click into the Security tab and toggle Enable Two-Factor Authentication to Yes.
A window will open for you to choose how the authentication code should be delivered, either from SMS text message or by email to the email address associated with your Abacus account.
After selecting an option, a verification code will be sent to the phone number or email address entered. Once the confirmation code is entered, Two Factor Authentication will be turned on.
Moving forward, you will be prompted to enter the code that is automatically sent to you whenever you login to your Abacus account. You will have the option to remember a device for 30 days.
Changing or Disabling Two Factor Authentication
If you would like to change the delivery method for the authentication code, make the change by going back to the Security tab and select the change button. There is also an option to regenerate the backup code if the current code is lost.
To disable Two Factor Authentication, switch the toggle to No. Please note, if your company requires 2FA, a user will not have this option.
