What is Two Step Verification
Two Step Verification is an extra layer of security to ensure that you're the only person who can access your Blacknight account, even if someone else knows your username and password.
How it works
Once Two Step Verification is enabled and activated and you want to sign in to your Blacknight account, you'll need to provide a six digit verification code that's displayed on your trusted device’s authentication app. This process improves the security of your Blacknight account and all the information stored with it.
Setup Two Step Verification
Login to your Blacknight account. if Two Step Verification is not already enabled, you'll be prompted to enable it, set this option to 'on' and click 'continue'.
Next you'll need to complete a few steps on a trusted device such as your phone or tablet.
- Download and install your preferred Authenticator App to your device. (You can choose from Google Authenticator, Microsoft, Authy, FreeOTP and others)
- With your device, simply scan the QR code displayed on screen or enter the pretty key to authenticate.
- To enable Two Step Verification, enter the 6 digit code from your authenticator app on screen and click 'Verify'.
You'll be redirected to your Blacknight Control Panel.
Every time you login to your control panel, you'll be prompted to enter a newly generated 6 digit code from your authenticator app.
