What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Learn what is 2FA and how to set it up.

Updated over a week ago

To enhance your account's security, set up two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication requires two forms of identification to access to your account: your WeTravel login credentials, and one-time passcode you receive via text message or Google Authenticator. So even if your login details would be compromised, malicious actors still cannot access your account because they would need a second form of verification.

How to set Two-Factor Authentication?

Go to your Profile, then Edit Profile and in there you will find a section titled Login and Security. This is where you can set up Two-Factor Authentication for your account. Just click the Get Started button.

Follow the steps on the popup to either set up Two-Factor Authentication via SMS or Google Authenticator.

All you have to do is enter your phone number, enter the verification code you'll receive in an SMS or set up Google Authenticator and you're all set.

Next time when you log in to WeTravel, we will send you a new verification code to your phone number or via Google Authenticator.

Do I have to set up Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-Factor Authentication is meant to enhance the security of your account. For this reason, once you collected a substantial amount from your participants, we will ask you to set up Two-Factor Authentication on your account.

We use one account with a shared password, what should I do?

Only one phone number or Google Authenticator app can be added to receive the authentication texts for an account.

Sharing your account details with others is a risky proposition (and against our Terms & Conditions). To give access to your colleagues, we strongly advise you to use our Team Member feature instead.

What happens if I change my phone number?

You can request your Two-Factor Authentication phone number or Google Authenticator to be changed. Find out more about it here.
