Securing Your HoorayHR Account with 2FA
At HoorayHR, data security and privacy are of utmost importance. That’s why HoorayHR offers the option to add an extra layer of security to your HoorayHR account with two-factor authentication (2FA). With 2FA you can secure your account even better while logging in.
This means that in addition to your password, you add an extra authentication step. Two-factor authentication combines something you know (your password) with something you have (an authentication device), which is usually your phone. Someone who gets hold of your password will only be able to log in if they also have access to your phone. By adding this extra step, you make your login much more secure.
What is Google Authenticator (2FA)?
