What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) allows you to add an additional layer of security to further protect sensitive data. It is a security process which means users must provide two separate authentication factors to verify themselves, firstly, a username and password, then a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that is generated using a separate authentication application. 

Please Note: You should only need to enter the PIN to log in once every 30 days on each device that you use. If you switch and connect to a different TaxCalc database you will need to enter a PIN when you switch back to a database/user with 2FA enabled.

In order to use two-factor authentication within TaxCalc, you will need to use a third-party authentication application if you don’t have one already, to provide the second factor of the authentication.
